Enjoy summer at Dogwood Canyon! We will leisurely walk on the paved and mostly flat trail that is shared with bikers and the tram.

The trail is about 1.9 miles to Glory Hole where we can stop and walk up the stairs to the top of the waterfall, Point 14 on the map. We will turn around from there and go back 1.9 miles for a total of about 4 miles within around 2 hours. Enjoy the trout streams, waterfalls, and we will stop at the Wilderness Chapel on the way back as it has a nice view of a waterfall from the back balcony.

I called Dogwood Canyon and they said the single-day ticket will be $18. We will pay at the admission building where we will wait for the group.

This ticket gets you the following:

The Dogwood Mill & Artifact Display [located as soon as you enter the main entrance doors, and from here you can walk outside to view close-up the waterfall]

Canyon Grill Restaurant [open from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.]

Treehouse (as seen on Animal Planet’s Treehouse Masters television series) [located at start of trail]

Nature & Conservation Center [located above gift shop when you go up the stairs and you can also get to it from the Treehouse]

Wilderness Chapel that is along the trail, plus the ½ mile Hickory Ridge Trail. Walking & Hiking on 6.5 miles of paved paths and 9 miles of trails.

Feel free to stay longer and enjoy these after walking and/or eating!

For anyone interested, we can eat at the Cafe with view of waterfall after the walk.
