Amys Creek rises in the northwestern corner of Habersham County, Georgia, at the foot of Irwin Mountain, and just north of State Route 17. The creek runs southeast parallel to State Route 17, then turns south and crosses both State Route 17 and State Route 255, before flowing into the Chattahoochee River less than 1 mile south of State Route 255.

The creek watershed is designated by the United States Geological Survey as sub-watershed HUC 031300010105, is named Amys Creek-Chattahoochee River sub-watershed, and drains an area of approximately 20 square miles northwest of Clarkesville, and east of the Chattahoochee River.
