Big Sunday Creek rises four miles south of Sapoak Cemetery in northern Erath County (at 32°25' N, 98°16' W) and runs northeast for fifteen miles to its mouth on Palo Pinto Creek, one mile northeast of Santo in southeastern Palo Pinto County (at 32°37' N, 98°12' W). It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grass.
