Parking: Parking is FREE for cars, buses and recreational vehicles. Walking Tour:
Walk a paved path through the forest to see large predators such as grizzly bears, wolves, cougars and other native forest animals, all in naturalistic exhibits.
The trail is wheelchair- and stroller-friendly. A limited number of wheelchairs and strollers are available for rent at the main office, first come first served, when you enter the park.
See bison, elk, moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goats and more on a Northwest Trek Tram Tour.
The 50-minute, naturalist-guided tram tour winds through 435 acres of meadows, woods, and lakes filled with native wildlife.
Be the first to spot the bison herd. In the spring, scout a bighorn ewe and her lamb in the meadows. Or in the fall, glimpse bull elk locking antlers as they tussle over a mate during the “rut” or breeding season.
A knowledgeable and friendly naturalist narrates the tour with fun animal facts and interesting stories about the park.
For those of you with a bit more adventure:
Zip Wild Adventure Course!
up to $59 per person depending on the course you select
and you must RSVP via NWTrek.
Exhilarating zip line/challenge courses run through Northwest Trek's breathtaking tree canopy and zip liners surge through the sky. It’s a wild adventure for the entire family.
Each course contains sections of zip line separated by barriers that must be walked over, climbed or crawled over or clambered through. The challenges vary from course to course, but they include elements such as swinging log bridges; bridges consisting of slatted steps spaced about two feet apart; cargo nets; balance beams; and tight ropes.
No course is solely a harness-in-and-slide-along zip line; all require some mental toughness and physical agility. And all are amazingly fun and completely fulfilling.
Other fun things to do at the Trek!

Animals are the stars of these trailside presentations, led by keepers. Get up close to a beaver, porcupine, skunk or other small animal. Learn about where they live and what they eat. View the schedule for Trailside Encounters.
Cheney Family Discovery Center
Discovering nature is fun for kids of all ages in this interactive environment, which is home to some of the park’s smallest critters. Meet toads, snakes and salamanders. You can’t touch the living animals but you can enjoy hands-on activities from puppet play to touchable animal pelts.
Baker Research Cabin
This representation of an old trapper’s cabin is all about conservation and research including citizen science. Here you have the opportunity to spy on the wolf pack from the kid-sized observation tunnel or use remote cameras to observe the foxes and coyotes.
Experience the beautiful Northwest forest scenery on five miles of paved and primitive trails. Each trail is coded with a different icon so following the right path is easy. A map is available at the trailhead.
