BRUSHY CREEK (Young County). Brushy Creek rises near State Highway 114 a mile west of Loving in northeastern Young County (at 33°15' N, 98°31' W) and flows sixteen miles northeast, across the southeastern corner of Archer County, to its mouth on West Fork of the Trinity River, four miles southwest of Antelope in northwestern Jack County (at 33°25' N, 98°24' W). Though ranchland makes up some of the creek's drainage area, the stream flows near or through several oilfields, including the Prideaux and Garvey holdings. It crosses an area of rolling prairie where mesquite and grasses grow.
