SALT BRANCH (Stonewall County). Salt Branch is a small tributary of the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River in southeast Stonewall County. The creek begins four miles north of the Stonewall-Jones county line and just west of the Stonewall-Haskell boundary (at 33°01' N, 100°00' W) and travels four miles, through remote rangeland, to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork (at 33°03' N, 100°02' W). It crosses densely dissected gullies and low hills with shallow soils and sparse vegetation.
