Brushy Creek rises near the Jackson-Wharton-Colorado county line in extreme northern Jackson County (at 29°14' N, 96°39' W) and runs southeast for seventeen miles to its mouth on Sandy Creek, at the northern end of Lake Texana just west of Ganado near the Sandy Creek oilfield (at 29°04' N, 96°34' W). It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
