Nature Trails



Experience the beautiful Northwest forest scenery on five miles of newly-enhanced paved and primitive trails. With admission to the park, you can take a short hike or follow the complete Sweet Water Spring Trail for a longer excursion. A series of signs with “you are here” maps are positioned all along the Nature Trail at frequent intervals so that hand-carried maps are not required.







Embark on a Quest

With the opening of the wildlife park’s improved loop trail, Northwest Trek launched a new nature-based scavenger hunt called a “Quest.”

Trail Quest booklets are provided up on admission to the wildlife park. Follow the clues to find letters throughout the nature trails. Then, unscramble the letters to answer a question for a surprise at the end!

Check out more Quests along the Northwest Trek nature trails during summer.
