DRY BRANCH (Hamilton County). Dry Branch rises fourteen miles southwest of Hamilton in south central Hamilton County (at 31°32' N, 98°14' W) and runs south for six miles, passing into Lampasas County before reaching its mouth on the Lampasas River (at 31°25' N, 98°12' W). It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
