CHERRY CREEK (Jeff Davis County). Cherry Creek rises a mile northeast of Mount Livermore and seventeen miles northwest of Fort Davis in central Jeff Davis County (at 30°41' N, 104°10' W) and runs northeast for sixty-seven miles before running dry five miles southwest of Pecos in central Reeves County (at 31°14' N, 103°34' W). In its lowest reaches the stream is flanked by levees for two miles. It crosses gently sloping and rugged, variable terrain surfaced by soils that support Mexican buckeye, walnut, persimmon, desert willow, scrub brush, and sparse grasses.
