Horse of the Month: Skipper

by Big Cedar Lodge 17. May 2013 11:19


Our May Horse of the Month is Skipper, one of our oldest trail horses at Dogwood Canyon Nature Park. He was born on June 6, 1986. He's a Quarter Horse, and his registered name is Lucky Skippernel! Skipper has taken countless adults and kids on trail rides at both Big Cedar Lodge and Dogwood Canyon. He is an all around horse and one of our favorites for sure. Next time you visit Dogwood Canyon, be sure to ask for Skipper!

Segways & Nature - A Great Combination

by Big Cedar Lodge 15. June 2010 11:39

Dogwood Canyon now offers segway tours, a unique and environmentally friendly way to connect with nature.  The segways provide a way for you see the park from a different aspect then the tram tours, walking, or biking the trails.  Anyone 10 years or older can ride the segways, and they are super easy to use! 


During the Glory Hole Tour, your guide will take you past Hope Chapel and share with you the rich history of the canyon.  The segway tour allows everyone a chance to get close to Thunder Falls and the Great Spirit Rock Shelter, two immense, natural waterfalls.  A great photo opportunity! On the way back, once you have had a chance to see all of the sights, you might just get a chance to really see how fast you can go on the segway!  But never worry, safety is always our main concern, and helmets are always worn.  After the 90 minutes fly by, the tour ends at the Glory Hole, where you will get to see your guide feed trophy rainbow trout.
