CLIFTY CREEK. Clifty Creek rises 1½ miles west of Millican in southern Brazos County (at 30°28' N, 96°13' W) and runs southeast for 4½ miles to its mouth on Big Creek, 1½ miles north of the Brazos River and the Brazos-Washington county line (at 30°25' N, 96°11' W). It crosses moderately rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports oak and pine forests with some mesquite and grasses.
