GOLDSTENS BRANCH. Goldstens Branch rises at an elevation of 2,100 feet above sea level some three miles west of Hudd in the badlands of northeastern Scurry County (at 32°56' N, 100°44' W) and runs northeast for six miles to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, just north of the Scurry-Kent county line (at 32°58' N, 100°40' W). During its journey through arid, barren oilfields and rangeland, the creek descends some 200 feet.
