BRUSHY ELM CREEK. Brushy Elm Creek rises six miles northwest of Muenster in northwestern Cooke County (at 33°43' N, 97°28' W) and runs southeast for sixteen miles to its mouth on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, two miles southeast of Myra (at 33°36' N, 97°17' W). It crosses rolling terrain surfaced by expansive clays and clay loams that support oak, juniper, and grasses.
