FIVEMILE DRAW. Fivemile Draw begins eight miles northeast of Carta Valley in southwestern Edwards County (at 29°51' N, 100°33' W) and runs east for eleven miles to its mouth on the West Nueces River, at State Highway 674 (at 29°51' N, 100°25' W). It traverses flat terrain with local deep and dense dissection, surfaced by shallow, stony soils that support oak, juniper, and mesquite.
