Bull Creek rises in central Coleman County (at 31°42' N, 99°32' W) and runs southeast for eighteen miles, through Fisk and Gouldbusk, to its mouth on the Colorado River, the southern county line (at 31°28' N, 99°25' W). It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
