Take Home the Memories of a Safari Adventure
Wolf Creek Preserve is home to one of the most visited eco-adventures in the world: Branson Zipline & Canopy Tours. Wolf Creek Reserve is not just about zip lining, it also offers Wolfe Creek Photo Safari Guided Walking Tour that allows guests to take photos. Here you will be met by the ecologically-knowledgeable guide who will help you go to the top of Wolfe Mountain to get into one of the Pinzgauer Swiss Army Troop Carriers. You will be travelling with the carrier through the meandering trails. During a refreshing mid-mountain stop, you will get the opportunity to take photos of the wildlife.
Once you set foot onto the trail you will know you are in a unique place where you can experience the most thrilling and exhilarating trek of your life. In the area, you will see 100-foot tall, 200-year old white oaks, clusters of ash, and dogwood trees. Red and gray squirrels cling from branch to branch while armadillos, deer, and raccoons peep through the brush below, searching for food. Beautiful changing of colors of the foliage will delight you alongside the trail.
After traversing to the mid-point of the trail, you and your fellow hikers, and your guide as well will take a mid-mountain snack break. It’s great to enjoy this time a refreshing snack, refreshing water, and the sounds of nature during this relaxing break. Taking the trail with your guide and fellow hikers, you will have the chance to meet up with other hikers who have chosen to take the Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour as they also take a break at the same spot as you. This wonderful meeting midway through zip lining tours and hiking is a feature of a world class facility of the Wolfe Creek Preserve that enables visitors of all ages to share the beauty of the wildlife together.
After you have rested mid-way and enjoyed the company of your guide and fellow hikers, you go down the mountain to finish the other half of the hike. Your guide will continue to relate fascinating facts about the land, landmarks that pertain to the history and other interesting information you need to know. Aside from pointing out species like box turtles or winged elm trees, your guide points on the trail where the zip line tour traverses. You can watch your friends flying above the trees, take some photos, or just enjoy viewing them soaring above the sky.
The hiking tour lasts approximately one and a half hours and we always make sure that every hiking tour participant had the opportunity to emulate nature and enjoy the hike. Time spans of hiking tours can vary depending on whether or not you opt to follow a zip lining tour to watch friends as they soar above the trees. No matter what your goal for the hiking trail is, our guides always want to provide a great adventure experience that suits you.
