HOG CREEK (Brown County). Hog Creek rises three miles southeast of May in northeastern Brown County (at 31°58' N, 98°53' W) and runs ten miles southwest to its mouth on Lake Brownwood, near the intersection of Ranch roads 2559 and 2273 (at 31°55' N, 99°02' W). It passes through rolling rocky hills with local dissection, surfaced by sandy loams that support cedar, some live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
