Let's go!

Wild Drive is unique, unforgettable and unlike anything offered at Northwest Trek. After purchasing your timed online ticket, you and your household members will drive your vehicle to our park’s welcome area. One of our experienced staff members will lead you in your vehicle and a small caravan of other vehicles into our stunning Free-Roaming Area where you’ll drive through serene meadows, shady wetlands, and dappled forests.
