DRY BRUSHY CREEK. Dry Brushy Creek rises three miles southeast of Coupland in southeastern Williamson County (at 30°24' N, 97°22' W) and runs northeast for fourteen miles to its mouth on Brushy Creek, nine miles southeast of Taylor (at 30°32' N, 97°16' W). The banks of the stream are heavily wooded in places with post oak trees, and the creek traverses nearly level to gently rolling terrain surfaced by loamy and clayey soils used predominantly for agriculture.
