LONG BRANCH (Cooke County). Long Branch rises just west of Muenster in west central Cooke County (at 33°49' N, 97°16' W) and runs south for three miles to its mouth on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River (at 33°47' N, 97°15' W). It traverses variable terrain surfaced by clay loams that support juniper, oak, and grasses. For most of the county's history, the Long Branch area has been used as range and crop land.
