EIGHTMILE DRAW (Hudspeth County). Eightmile Draw rises a half mile north of Hueco Station in north central Hudspeth County (at 31°44' N, 105°19' W) and runs east for seventeen miles before drying out at a point four miles south of Linda Lake in the salt basin of northeastern Hudspeth County (at 31°44' N, 105°08' W). The stream is intermittent in the lower reaches. It traverses steep to gently sloping terrain surfaced by shallow, stony soils that support Mexican buckeye, walnut, persimmon, desert willow, scrub brush, and sparse grasses.
