Cedar Creek rises a mile south of Peach Creek and three miles east of the Brazos River in southern Brazos County (at 30°30' N, 96°18' W) and flows south for four miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, 2½ miles from Clay Lake (at 30°27' N, 96°18' W). The stream traverses low to moderately rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support oak and pine forests with some mesquite and occasional grasses.
