SAND CREEK (Brazos County). Sand Creek rises on the String Prairie 3½ miles northwest of Kurten in northern Brazos County (at 30°48' N, 96°18' W) and runs east for ten miles to its mouth on the Navasota River, at Democrat Crossing on the Brazos-Madison county line (at 30°48' N, 96°10' W). Approximately one mile north of this point is the Madison-Grimes county line. Sand Creek flows through an area of low to moderately rolling terrain. Vegetation consists primarily of oak and pine forests with some mesquite and grasses growing in deep to shallow sandy clay loams.
