Fall into fun

Then have some fall fun yourself! Fall is one of the most beautiful times here at Northwest Trek: misty mornings, crisp air, lush leaf color and a hint of snow. Slide and climb at the Kids' Trek playground, ride the Free-Roaming Area tram to spot elk, moose, bison and more, take a Keeper Adventure Tour. Or just get close to nature on our trails.
Do come in costume - but adults, leave the scary masks and face paint at home, please.

Home-Grown & Yummy

Did you know? Many of our pumpkins were grown right here at Northwest Trek by students at the local Weyerhaeuser Elementary School! They had a special field trip to harvest them and hide them for animals. Story coming soon!
