LICK BRANCH. Lick Branch rises just north of Denton and a mile northwest of the intersection of State Highway 36 and Farm Road 604 in west central Callahan County (at 32°16' N, 99°33' W) and runs six miles southeast to its mouth on the South Prong of Pecan Bayou, two miles west of Farm Road 604 (at 32°12' N, 99°30' W). It initially traverses an area with steep slopes and benches and some gently sloping land, surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses; towards its mouth the branch crosses a flat, flood-prone area surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
