DRY BRANCH (Stephens County). Dry Branch rises near the junction of U.S. Highway 183 and Farm Road 1481, eight miles northwest of Breckenridge in northwest Stephens County (at 32°44' N, 98°58' W) and runs east for four miles to its mouth on Hubbard Creek, two miles southwest of Crystal Falls (at 32°50' N, 98°57' W). It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
