EDWARDS BRANCH. Edwards Branch (Edwards Creek) rises in northwestern Stephens County a mile east of the Shackelford county line (at 32°51' N, 99°04' W) and runs southeast for three miles to its mouth on Hubbard Creek Reservoir (at 32°49' N, 99°02' W). It traverses an area of rolling hills surfaced by clay and sandy loam soils that support mesquite, juniper, and live oak.
