Browns Creek rises just south of Knight Mountain and 5½ miles southeast of Lometa in southwestern Lampasas County (at 31°09' N, 98°21' W) and runs southwest for 5½ miles to its mouth on Lynch Creek, three miles west of Nix (at 31°08' N, 98°26' W). It crosses an area of the Grand Prairie region characterized by steeply to moderately sloping hills, with some sections displaying the steep slopes and limestone benches that often give a stairstep appearance to the landscape along streams. The shallow, stony sandy and clay loams support grasses and open stands of live oak, Ashe juniper, and mesquite.
