SHEFFIELD DRAW. Sheffield Draw begins twelve miles west of Sheffield in eastern Pecos County (at 30°42' N, 102°02' W) and runs east for seventeen miles to its mouth two miles east of Sheffield (at 30°41' N, 101°47' W). The terrain is flat with local shallow depressions. The soil in the area is characterized by clay and sandy loams, and the vegetation consists primarily of water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers. Farm Road 1217 crosses the draw near the Pecos-Terrell county line.
