SYCAMORE CREEK (Tarrant County). Sycamore Creek rises five miles north of Crowley in southwestern Tarrant County (at 32°37' N, 97°23' W) and runs northeast for fifteen miles to its mouth on the West Fork of the Trinity River, one mile east of Fort Worth (at 32°45' N, 97°18' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It runs through central Fort Worth, passing under Interstate Highway 35 and U.S. Highway 287. Variable terrain in the area is surfaced by shallow, stony clay loams that support juniper, oak, and grasses. Before the development of the city, the Sycamore area was used primarily as range and crop land.
