HITSON DRAW. Hitson Draw is a stream that rises 5½ miles north of Molesworth Mesa in north central Hudspeth County (at 31°50' N, 105°34' W) and runs northeast for twenty-three miles before terminating at a Soil Conservation Service dam that was completed in 1982 five miles southwest of Dell City (at 31°52' N, 105°15' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses an area of steep to gentle slopes surfaced by variable soils that support scrub brush and grasses.
