HUBBARD BRANCH. Hubbard Branch rises one mile northwest of Mount Sylvan and two miles east of Carroll in northwestern Smith County (at 32°28' N, 95°28' W) and runs north for half a mile to Hide-A-Way Lake, continues to run a half mile through the lake, and then proceeds four more miles to its mouth on Duck Creek (at 32°32' N, 95°27' W). The stream traverses flat to rolling terrain with some steep slopes. The local soils are gravel over clay near the stream's source and around the lake, brown loamy sand along the stream's middle reaches, and poorly drained loam with a clay subsoil at its mouth. Area vegetation consists primarily of pine and hardwood forests.
