MOSS BRANCH. Moss Branch rises west of Wilbarger Bend in western Bastrop County (at 30°09' N, 97°28' W) and flows westward, quickly veering north, for two miles to its mouth at Dry Creek (at 30°11 N, 97°29' W). The stream rises in an upland area and ends in an area of low terraces and floodplains, with loamy surface soil throughout its course. Vegetation along the stream course consists primarily of post oak woods and grasslands.
