Walnut Creek rises a mile south of Chapin near the Hood-Parker county line in northeastern Hood County (at 32°31' N, 97°40' W) and flows south for ten miles before joining the Brazos River two miles south of Acton (at 32°25' N, 97°41' W). The stream flows over occasionally steeply sloping terrain with a shallow clay loam surface that supports juniper, live oak, and mesquite. For most of the county's history the area has been used as ranchland.
