5 Mile Cart Tour
Available Mid – September Through November (Dates For Fall 2023 Coming In August)
About: Come experience the beautiful colors, wonderful smells and crunchy sounds of fall! This 1.5 hour adventure is open to those ages 2+ and no experience is necessary. Guests will spend the first 30 minutes or so meeting and greeting the sled dogs and helping their musher(s) prepare the dogs and cart for the trail (this part is hands on to your comfort level). Once the team is ready, guests will then embark on a 5 mile ride that last approximately 40 minutes. We always leave 10 minutes or so at the end for guests to say thank you to the sled dogs for a job well done by giving out belly rubs and pats.
For the safety and comfort of the sled dogs, we require it to be 55 degrees or cooler to conduct this ride. If it is between 55 and 65 degrees during your schedule tour time, your ride may be shortened to 2 miles ($75 per person), if it is warmer than 65 we will be unable to do a ride, but can conduct our K9 & Kisses meet and greet experience ($25 per person).

PLEASE NOTE – Our cart can accommodate a maximum of 4 riders or 400lbs at one time (it’s whichever limit is reached first). For parties that exceed this weight / passenger restriction, we offer the opportunity to “split” the ride within your party. With the split experience, your party will meet and greet the dogs all together and then split the ride in half (meaning guest will get a 2.5 mile / 20 minute ride vs. the full 5 mile / 40 minute ride). Please note, for this to logistically work, you need to have 2 drivers in your party (or one person who drivers and doesn’t participate) as someone needs to be available to drive your vehicle down (and then back) to a nearby trail turn around spot where party members can swap on and off. Please keep the weight / passenger restriction in mind when booking your adventure. The most we can accommodate in one timeslot is 8 guests (2 parties of 4 that collectively weigh 400lbs or less). The cost is $65 per person “splitting” the ride (the first party member is charged full price regardless of ride duration ie: 2 people wishing to split the ride is $160 ($95 + $65) NOT $95.00). To reserve this discounted shared option, please contact us directly either via email or phone during office hours.
