Rattlesnake Creek rises in west central Garza County (at 33°14' N, 101°24' W) near the breaks of the Llano Estacado and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway and two miles northwest of Post, the county seat. The creek flows east, forming several small pools in its upper reaches, for five miles to its mouth (at 33°14' N, 101°20' W) on the North Fork of the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River three miles northeast of Post. Moderately steep slopes with some locally high relief are surfaced by moderately deep silt loams to shallow, stony clay and sandy loams which support mainly mesquite and grasses.
