Beef Canyon rises eight miles west of Bullis Gap in eastern Brewster County (at 29°51' N, 102°43' W) and runs northeast for ten miles to its mouth on San Francisco Creek six miles north of Bullis Gap (at 29°54' N, 102°36' W). In the upper reaches of Beef Canyon steep to gentle slopes are surfaced by variable soils that support scrub brush and grasses; in its lower reaches flat terrain with local shallow depressions is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
