Bluff Creek rises two miles due west of Osage in eastern Coryell County (at 31°31' N, 97°37' W) and flows to the east for about twelve miles, then drains into the Middle Bosque River two miles north of Crawford in northwestern McLennan County (at 31°34' N, 97°28' W). The creek's drainage area is range and crop land of variable topography; the vegetation is mostly juniper, live oak, grasses, and chaparral, well adapted to the region's thin, stony, clay loam land surface.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
