Written Directions

This ride is in Lake Worth. Heading west from Ft Worth on 199, just as you cross the Lake Worth bridge, take your 1st left. At the crossroads turn right then left onto Watercress.follow Silver Creek to the left. After crossing a small bridge, immediately turn left onto Heron. When you reach N. Las Vegas Trail make a left, then an immediate left onto Shore View Drive. Go right on Bomber Rd, then right on Silver Creek. Follow Silver Creek to N. Las Vegas Trail and go right. At Heron go Right and follow the route backwards back to Casino Beach (199)

Scenery

A really sweet ride around Lake Worth with great scenery. Great ride in the springtime when the trees and flowers are blooming. Lots of trees growing over the roadway.

Drive Enjoyment

Lots of twisties on this ride. This is 1 lane each direction and a little narrow. Roads are for the most part in decent shape. A stretch along Silver Creek is rough and bumpy due to heavy truck traffic, but other than that it's mostly in good shape.

Tourism Opportunities

This is mostly for the ride, but there are a few parks to stop at. At the intersection of Silver Creek and N. Las Vegas Trail there is a convenience store to grab a drink or munchie.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

If you want twisties... this is a great ride. If you want a nice Sunday afternoon 2 up ride with your sweety... this is a great ride.

Great ride. Loved it. The city of Fort Worth knows how to treat there citizens. Why would anybody want to live any place else. Lake life and tree cover roads. I'll ride the Lizard Tail again.

Cool route close to the west side of the metroplex with the a country feel that you'd normally have to drive a lot further away for. If you like neighborhood speeds with 20 mph sharp turns and shade, you'll love it. The roads have some roughness, but no potholes or uneven lines. You might get stuck behind a senior citizen in fear of driving over 20 mph, and you'll probably have a local ride up on your ass, but I really liked the ride. There's even a nice park halfway through that you can stop and stretch at. I'd be afraid to drive it at night. Limited sight on many turns might run you right into a local animal, and the lighting is non-existent most of the way. You might land in the lake via the drop offs, if you don't see these turns coming up. It would probably be a great summer day ride because of the shade.

Good: It was a nice ride in July heat with the tree canopies, lake views, cookout and sunscreen smells, and low speeds.

Bad: The road is torn up in a few places and there are several blind curves. Road humps are present in the route by the some of the park areas.

Conclusion: I wouldn't trek a long way to experience this route but if you live nearby it's good, given we don't have many options. Next time I'll stop in one of the parks and seek to enjoy the environment more before moving on.
