REYNOLDS BRANCH. Reynolds Branch rises two miles northwest of Fort Griffin State Park in northeastern Shackelford County (at 32°57'N, 99°17' W) and runs east for five miles to its mouth on the Clear Fork of the Brazos River, just over the Throckmorton county line a mile north of the park (at 32°57' N, 99°14' W). Steep slopes and benches in the creek's upper reaches are surfaced by shallow clay loam that supports juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses; in the creek's lower reaches the terrain changes to rolling hills surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses.
