After reading several reviews ahead of time, my wife and I (we're in our 50s) decided to rent bikes for $22 each instead of just walking so that we'd have time to do the whole 6 miles. The trail is 3 miles each way, paved with asphalt the whole way, and 99% level. There's a few very slight rises to... More

This is one of my favorite places near Branson! This place is meticulously maintained, and the paths and bridges are so picturesque. They are building a new educational center, with restaurant and gift shop, and working grist mill, that is going to be amazing. I can't wait to see it when it is done! We didn't walk the whole 6...

I visited here while on vacation to Branson,MO with my sister, her 10 year old daughter, my 8 year old daughter, and my mom. It does cost quite a bit to get in here, but it's worth it. It's paved through here and the path winds around waterfalls,a chapel, and it does have restrooms along the way.. More like outhouses... More

We did the self-guided tour and just took our time walking through. It's expensive to visit, tickets at $15, but the six-mile hike is beautiful, with creeks, fish, waterfalls. You can also take a tram tour if you choose. It's a great place to just take your time, picnic. It is pricey, but very well taken care of. The walkway... More

We did the self guided walk which was quite nice and also the hardest "Easy" trail I have taken. It may have been that the entire trail is asphalt or the fact that it was 83 and sunny today and we went off on the 6 mile round trip hike without any water or a hat. Other options include renting...

We did the self-guided walking option through the park and really enjoyed it. I was a little leery of a place asking us to pay to walk through nature, but it looks like the money is being well spent on the grounds- the waterfalls and trails are gorgeous. I liked the way they marked all the spots of special interest.... More

By far the best money we spent on our entire trip. I was leery about going there, since it was so pricey and didn't really explain the layout very well on the website. Thankfully, we ran into another family who had just been the day before, and they were the ones who talked us into going. So glad they did.... More

We took our two girls on a 2 hour tram ride through Dogwood Canyon, crossing multiple river crossings while experiencing historic landmarks, breathtaking waterfalls and picturesque scenery. I would highly recommend this experience. you can rent bikes, Segways, take the tram or go on a Jeep tour, all are different priced.

It's about 6 miles one way if I remember correctly. Easy walk and so beautiful. Waterfalls are gorgeous and the trees around really bring nature alive. It was very hot the day we were there but so worth the walk. If I lived there I would have season tickets.

We went to try something different from Branson area and headed here for the first tram ride of the day at 10 am. We toured it on a Wednesday. This place is quite breathtaking, and so peaceful. We were allowed to feed the trout and our guide put feed out for the deer, the bison and the long horned cattle.... More
