We visited Dogwood Canyon on our annual fall foliage tour this year. We traveled here from a train tour in Fort Smith that we thought would be the highlight of our trip. Although the train ride was very nice Dogwood Canyon is the best place...More

This is a beautiful place to visit. But you must make reservations for the tram. You will not get on without a reservation. I would give it 5 stars but it is pretty pricey. 10 to get in and then 35 to ride the tram.

We love to hike, so found this to be a walk,more than a hike. Peak colors on Nov 2, just beautiful. This is a perfect place for someone who is challenged by a trail with rocks, roots and other obstacles.

I would contact them to ask about pets. 1.877.459.5687. We did see a few dogs on leashes, but there may be areas of the park they are not allowed due to the wildlife.

The walking path is paved and would be stroller friendly. There's lots of fish to see, waterfalls, there's a treehouse that would be fun to explore.
