Brushy Creek rises two miles northwest of Lexington in northern Lee County (at 30°26' N, 97°02' W) and runs northeast for ten miles to its mouth on East Yegua Creek, the Lee-Burleson county line, six miles southeast of Lexington (at 30°28' N, 96°54' W). Brushy Creek traverses generally flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
