Walking Tour

Walk along a paved path through the forest and see large predators like grizzly bears, wolves, cougars and other native forest animals, all in naturalistic exhibits. Then, observe smaller wetlands and forest creatures like river otters, beavers, and wolverines swimming in their pools and keeping cozy in their dens.

The trail is wheelchair- and stroller-friendly. A limited number of wheelchairs and strollers are available for rent at the main office when you enter the park.

Look for these animals on your walk through Northwest Trek!

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.
