Mossy Creek rises in south-central White County, Georgia, south of Truett-McConnell College in Cleveland, and just east of U.S. Route 129. The creek runs south for approximately 2.6 miles, and turns sharply east southwest of Benefit, as it is joined by an unnamed branch coming from the west of US 129. Mossy Creek continues east and crosses State Route 75 just south of Benefit, then turns southeast as it picks up another nameless branch. After another 2.7 miles traveled in a southeasterly direction, Mossy Creek is joined by two other nameless branches, then meanders southward for approximately 1.8 miles to its meeting with Dean Creek. Traveling 3.4 miles further through Rogers Mill, the creek flows into the Chattahoochee River in Mossy Creek State Park, approximately 2 miles south of where White Creek meets the river.

Sub-watershed details

The creek watershed and associated waters is designated by the United States Geological Survey as sub-watershed HUC 031300010302, is named the Mossy Creek sub-watershed, and drains an area of approximately 30 square miles south of Cleveland, and west of the Chattahoochee River.
