Horseback Riding:

Horseback riding at Dogwood Canyon Nature Park allows you to explore the Ozarks through the eyes of early settlers, discovering areas of the park not seen by the tram or from walking and biking trails.Located right along Little Indian Creek, the new Little Indian Stables has 24 stalls and gives guests the chance to meet the horses before setting out on their horseback adventure. Experienced wranglers guide guests on a leisurely ride while exploring ridges, hollows, old logging roads and other scenic views. The new Little Indian Stables at Dogwood Canyon offers one or two hour-long trail rides. Reservations are required.

Carriage Rides: (Offered for Special Occasions)

Horse-drawn carriages, reminiscent of a bygone era, carry guests on a ride through the canyon. Pass by trout filled streams, cascading waterfalls, the Hope Wilderness Chapel and much more. It’s a romantic way to celebrate a wedding or anniversary! Rides are offered for these special occasions and advance reservations are required.

Please call 1.800.225.6343 for prices and offerings.
