The Elm Fork Nature Preserve was purchased as a woodright in 1861 by a local family. The land was never clear-cut and in 1986 the 40 acres were given to the city of Carrollton as a self-contained ecosystem, virtually undisturbed. Trails are open for hikes 365 days a year from dawn to dusk. A pond, environmental education classes and more are offered at the facility
