Two branches join at John Hinkel Park. Another small branch starts around Capistrano Street and joins further down. There's a short daylighted segment on the grounds of Thousand Oaks school. This creek used to proceed through Albany and join Cerrito Creek near Albany Hill, however these days it flows into the Marin Creek storm drain. The short remaining segment near Albany Hill is now a separate watershed.
The lower part of this creek used to be called Middle Creek.
