Cauthorn Draw begins 1½ miles east of the junction of State Highway 55 and U.S. Highway 277 in south central Sutton County (at 30°17' N, 100°37' W) and runs northwest for 14½ miles until it meets the Dry Devil's River two miles west of U.S. 277 (at 30°25' N, 100°44' W). The hollow is surrounded by the gently rolling limestone terrain of the western Edwards Plateau and surfaced by loam, occasionally broken by rock outcrops, that supports grasses with scattered small stands of oak, juniper, and mesquite.
