BRUSH PEN HOLLOW CREEK. Brush Pen Hollow Creek rises eleven miles north of Oakville in southwestern Live Oak County (at 28°37' N, 98°06' W) and runs southwest for nine miles to its mouth on the Atascosa River, six miles northwest of Three Rivers (at 28°33' N, 98°13' W). It runs through Brush Pen Hollow. The surrounding terrain is low-rolling to flat upstream and flat downstream and is surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports scrub brush, cacti, and grasses in the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses in its lower.
