Unlike Deep Creek directly to the north, Goose Creek flows across a relatively flat, broad terrace that was cut by the ancient Clackamas River. It enters the Clackamas River, just upriver from Barton Park. The soil is composed of unweathered fluvial gravel, sand and silt deposits. Most of this area small subwatershed is characterized by pasture lands with a small pocket of forested land in the south of the watershed.
