  1. Dogwood Canyon on September 8, 2018 (8A-4P);
    1. Dogwood Canyon Nature Park is a one-of-a-kind experience for nature lovers and adventure seekers of all ages. Covering 10,000 acres of pristine Ozark Mountain landscape, the park has miles of crystal-clear trout streams, cascading waterfalls, ancient burial caves, unique hand-built bridges and bottomless, blue-green pools. Call it a “ride on the wild side,” if you will. Step aboard our comfortable, open-air trams and explore the beauty of Dogwood Canyon on our 2-hour Wildlife Tram Tour (lunch included). You’ll wind through the canyon floor, past towering bluffs and waterfalls, making a stop at the Glory Hole (a magnificent blue-green pool where some of our largest trout reside). Then cross the Arkansas border where your tram may mingle with herds of American bison, elk, whitetail deer and Texas longhorn.
