COUNCIL BRANCH. Council Branch rises four miles north of Lingleville in western Erath County (at 32°18' N, 98°23' W) and runs southeast four miles to its mouth on the North Bosque River, eight miles northwest of Stephenville (at 32°16' N, 98°21' W). It runs through flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine sandy loam that supports hardwood trees, conifers, brush, and grasses. Downstream, steep slopes and benches are surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
