Boggy Creek begins in northwestern Lavaca County (at 29°27' N, 97°03' W) and flows south through Wied before emptying into Rocky Creek (at 29°24' N, 97°03' W). It descends 162 feet over its three-mile length. The neighboring flat to rolling terrain is marked by local escarpments, a surface of fine sandy loams, and a flora that features post oak forests and grasses.
