BOGGY BRANCH (FAYETTE COUNTY)
BOGGY BRANCH (Fayette County). Boggy Branch rises in a wooded area a mile northwest of Round Top High School in northern Fayette County (at 30°05' N, 96°42' W) and runs southeast for about 2½ miles, past the school and the north side of Round Top, to its mouth on Rocky Creek (at 30°04' N, 96°41' W). Throughout most of its meandering course its banks are steeply sloping and wooded with a mixture of oak and cedar and an understory of yaupon. The sandy loam topsoil in the area overlies firm clay. Slopes render the land better for unimproved pasture and wildlife habitat than for agriculture.
