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.

Embark On A Quest

Quests are fun learning adventures that use clues and hints to encourage participants to discover the natural world around them. These adventures are suitable for groups of all ages and encourage interaction between participants. Northwest Trek currently offers two Quests, located on the paved Nature Trail loop and on the Predator Loop (bears/canines/cats). Quest booklets are found at the beginning of the Nature Trail and at the Tour Station.
