Brady Creek rises thirteen miles southwest of Eden in southwestern Concho County (at 31°06' N, 100°02' W) and flows ninety miles eastward, through McCulloch County and into west central San Saba County, to its mouth on the San Saba River, twenty-one miles southwest of San Saba (at 31°08' N, 98°59' W). The creek, which has flowing water throughout most of its course, is dammed in its upper reaches at Camp Billy Gibbons, a Boy Scout camp belonging to the Comanche Trail Council, and again at the Brady Reservoir, three miles west of Brady in McCulloch County. It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced in some places by shallow, stony soil and in others by clay loams that support grasses, oaks, junipers, and mesquite. In the scout camp the creek's south bank is a high bluff. Tributaries of the stream in Concho County include Live Oak Creek, Fitzgerald Creek, Harden Branch, Kelly Creek, and Maverick Creek, and in McCulloch County, South Brady Creek, Bowie Creek, Live Oak Creek, Post Oak Creek, Onion Creek, and Little Brady Creek.
