Cactus Branch rises a mile west of Lott in western Falls County (at 31°11' N, 97°03' W) and runs south for six miles to its mouth on Pond Creek, five miles northwest of Rosebud (at 31°07' N, 97°03' W). It crosses flat to rolling prairie surfaced by dark, calcareous clays that support mesquite, cacti, and grasses.
