COX HOLLOW. Cox Hollow rises ten miles west of Hud in extreme north central Scurry County (at 32°57' N, 100°52' W) and dips to the southeast, then travels northeast for a total of twelve miles to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, just north of the Scurry-Kent county line and fifteen miles southeast of Clairemont (at 32°58' N, 100°41' W). The creek crosses an area of dissected gullies and low hills with shallow soils that support brush and grasses.
