THE FOX – North Carolina’s Yadkin Valley Hiking & Winery Tour:

Join us for a fun filled day-trip of a morning hiking in some of central North Carolina’s most beautiful scenery, followed by wine tastings of fantastic award-winning locally made wines at 2 of  North Carolina’s best and most dog friendly wineries. Whether you are with a group or just traveling with your canine best friend, you will really enjoy this amazing day adventure tour!

Pilot Mountain, our first stop, has spectacular views of the winery-rich Yadkin Valley, the Sauratown Mountains, the Blue Ridge Mountains to the northwest, and the skyline of Downtown Winston Salem to the south. Referred to by the natives of the area as Jomeokee or Great Guide because it has been a navigational landmark for centuries, Pilot Mountain rises abruptly 2,400 feet from the valley floor below. There are hikes with a variety of difficulty levels to choose from, all with amazing views.

Happy Tails Tours proudly specializes in unique small-group tours with a high level of personalized service and an attention to detail that has set us apart for decades. Our mission is to ensure that our canine guests (and humans) have the wonderful experiences that they deserve, and that the two of you create the deep, meaningful bond that we have had the blessing to experience by traveling with our dogs.

NO DOG? You are not required to bring a dog in order to participate. All dog lovers are welcome. We understand that you may just want to hang out with our fantastic four-legged friends.

Pre-Order Packages: Our introductory pre summer-season pricing will increase soon. To celebrate our Grand Opening, we are offering packages that will enable you to lock in current pricing through the busy summer season. Packages also make great customized birthday or anniversary gifts. And don’t forget to check out our favorite, a Spoil Your Dog Rotten Birthday Celebration group package that includes cake and treats for canines and humans alike.

What’s better than a hike, a wine tour and awesome tour guides? Getting to spend the beautiful day with your doggie!! I can’t say enough about how great our trip was with Happy Tails. David and Claudia were so accommodating and made the day so enjoyable, I can’t wait to take another trip with them.
