Brushy Creek rises in central Fannin County (at 33°37' N, 96°24' W) 2½ miles southeast of Dodd City and runs southeast for 5½ miles to its mouth on the North Sulfur River, two miles east of Gober (at 33°41' N, 96°21' W). The surrounding flat to rolling prairie has locally steep slopes and is surfaced by shallow to deep clays and clay loams that support oak, juniper, mesquite, and various grasses.
