Honcut Creek has a north branch and a south branch. The north branch is completely in Butte County. The south branch is about 27 miles long and forms a large portion of the border between Yuba County and Butte County. Its tributaries include Natchez Creek, Prairie Creek, Tennessee Creek, Wilson Creek, and Wildcat Ravine.
The two branches merge about 2.5 miles upstream from the point where Honcut Creek flows into the Feather River. The merged portion of Honcut Creek also serves as the border between Yuba County and Butte County.
