Carroll County hosts four sites of the Wildlife and Birding Trail system. The trail is the first statewide program of its kind. The trail loops in Carroll County are a part of the Mountain Area of the state that incorporates 34 trail loops with 340 sites in SW Virginia.

The trail loops in Carroll County consist of Beaver Dam Creek Trail, Devil's Den Nature Preserve, Crooked Creek Wildlife Management Area, and the Stewarts Creek Wildlife Management Area.

These sites are a part of the Blue Ridge Highlands Loop that spans from the New River to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The drive between each site is scenic and can provide extensive wildlife watching opportunities from the road. Whitetail deer is abundant throughout this area, as are woodchuck and eastern chipmunk. Sites often feature historic and geological characteristics.
