BRUSHY CREEK (King County). Brushy Creek, once known as Hackberry Creek, rises six miles northeast of Haystack Mountain in southwestern King County (at 33°27' N, 100°21' W) and flows north for five miles to its mouth on North Croton Creek, a mile west of Interstate Highway 38 (33°32' N, 100°19' W). It crosses an area of moderately steep slopes with locally high relief, surfaced by silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
