“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I have one word only --Beautiful! We rented the bikes and they are basic bikes. No fancy gear shifters. We asked for baskets to carry our cameras around and took tons of pictures. I think we were lucky enough to get a great family shot for our Christmas cards this year. Fall is just starting...so it looks. There are a few red patches so if you go after the 22nd of October, you might get better color than we did. We will certainly go back next time we're in the area. Also, if you do the bikes, the outbound trip is a little up hill, but way back is mostly down hill. I suggest you budget about 4 hours, if you're like us and take pictures at most of the spots.

Very pretty place to visit with the changing colors. very nice tour and friendly people. I loved the buffalo and elk. Made me want to go fishing when i saw some really big trout. Take a blanket to keep warm. If you forget they have some.

“Beautiful scenery!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We took the tram tour, which was amazing. Got up close and personal with bison and elk, also saw some baby fawns. Our tour guide was very friendly and gave great information about the park. We also rode the bikes to the end of the park. HIghly recommend Dogwood Canyon!

“Lovely park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We took the wildlife tram tour and got to see all of the beautiful waterfalls, caves, pools, etc, plus drive thru the preserve which had deer, longhorn cattle, bison, and elk. It was fun to see the wildlife that close. Our guide was very knowledgeable (I now know what karst topography is), and the scenery well worth seeing. Wild love to see it in all four seasons, worth coming back for!
