PYLE DRAW. Pyle Draw runs from a point north of Downie Draw in southern Pecos County (at 30°17' N, 102°46' W) into west central Terrell County near U.S. Highway 285 and on east for twenty miles to its mouth on Downie Draw, south of Two Top Mountain (at 30°16' N, 102°31' W). Pyle Draw is composed of sand, gravel, and mud substrate with variable soil characteristics and is infrequently subject to sudden and severe flooding. Scrub brush and sparse grasses grow along the steep to gentle slopes of the draw.
