DRY BRANCH (Stephens County). Dry Branch rises ten miles northwest of Breckenridge in northwest Stephens County (at 32°52' N, 99°00' W) and runs east for five miles to its mouth on Hubbard Creek, three miles southwest of Crystal Falls (at 32°52' N, 98°56' W). It first traverses rolling prairie surfaced by clay and sandy loam soils that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses. Near its mouth the terrain changes to flat with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
