DUGOUT DRAW. Dugout Draw, which has an intermittent stream, rises a mile north of Nugent Mountain and four miles southeast of Panther Junction in Big Bend National Park in south central Brewster County (at 29°17' N, 103°11' W) and runs east for ten miles to its mouth on Tornillo Creek, 6½ miles southeast of Roys Peak (at 29°16' N, 103°03' W). In its upper reaches the creek traverses an area of steep to gentle slopes surfaced by variable soils that support scrub brush and sparse grasses. Its lower reaches are in flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by shallow to deep sandy loams that support pecan, willow, and grasses.
