Animal Walking Paths
Gaze at grizzlies, cougars and more on our Animal Walking Paths, then play at the Kids’ Trek playground.
NOTE: Discovery Tram Tours are paused as we build for new electric trams, coming spring 2023! To see animals in our Free-Roaming Area, book a premier tour.
Our central walking paths lead you around the park to meet bears, canines, cats, birds and more. See What animals you will see by visiting our animals page.
Hands-on activities abound! Adults can help children discover the natural world at their own pace, with naturalists on hand to answer questions and offer take-home activities. Meet Northwest Trek’s smaller residents: northern leopard frogs, pacific tree frogs, boreal toads, newts, a banana slug and a gopher snake named Gopher. Learn More.
Step inside this cozy forest cabin to get an up-close look at our wolf pack and learn more about how you can do science every day.
Feel the softness of a real pelt and climb into the tunnel to get nose-to-nose with a gray wolf! (Activities vary.)
Experience the beautiful Northwest forest scenery and get comfy with hiking on five miles of paved and primitive trails, free with park admission.
