Big Hollow Creek begins nine miles southwest of Divot in southwest Frio County (at 28°44' N, 99°23' W) and runs northeast for four miles to its mouth on Todos Santos Creek, two miles northwest of Divot (at 28°46' N, 99°21' W). It traverses rolling prairie upstream, then flat terrain with locally shallow depressions. The caliche and clay land surface supports dwarf evergreen oak, juniper, mesquite, grasses, water-tolerant hardwoods, and conifers.
