Beck Branch rises two miles west of Cutoff Mountain in eastern Hamilton County (at 31°45' N, 97°56' W) and runs southwest for eight miles to its mouth on the Leon River (at 31°39' N, 97°56' W). It crosses flat to steeply sloping terrain surfaced by shallow, stony, clay loam that supports juniper, oak, grasses, chaparral, and cacti.
