The Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area (LLELA) was created in the early 1990s when the Army Corp of Engineers formed a consortium to manage nearly 2600 acres below the Lake Lewisville dam. A variety of habitats (prairies, bottom land hardwood forests, wetlands and cross timbers forests) within LLELA means that there is a wide variety of wildlife to be seen, some of which includes: deer, bobcat, mink, birds, turkey, and a variety of waterfowl.
During your visit you can enjoy:
5 trails that range from 0.3 to 2.5 miles long and are interconnected and together create a longer 6-mile hike
paddling on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River or on Beaver Pond
picnicking in a large pavilion
visiting an 1870s pioneer homestead
plenty of birding opportunities
special scheduled events
