PANTHER CREEK (Brown County). Panther Creek rises just east of State Highway 279 and four miles northwest of Lake Brownwood in northwestern Brown County (at 31°55' N, 99°07' W) and runs south six miles to its mouth on Briar Creek near Lake Brownwood (at 31°51' N, 99°07' W). It traverses an area of rolling hills and steep slopes, surfaced by clay and sandy loams and shallow sands that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, live oak, juniper, and grasses.
