Located a little off the beaten trail, Northwest Trek is an experience-oriented zoo dedicated to conservation, education, and recreation throughout native Northwest wildlife.
Its largest exhibit is the Discovery Tram Tour, where you can become one with the pack. You’ll likely see moose, bison, and elk during the 40-minute tour through the natural hillside along the foothills of the Mt. Rainier National Park. It’s wild out there – and they don’t like to disturb the natural order of things – so sometimes you’ll get stuck behind a bison who just doesn’t want to mooooooove!
The Animal Walking Tour follows a paved path that winds through the trees offering sights into bear, wolf, cougar, and bird exhibits. They have smaller exhibits too that include beavers and otters.
Have you ever tried a zip-line? They have five different courses with varying levels, so the entire family have a blast! Try the Super Kid Course, the Discovery Course, the Aerial Runway, Adventure Course, or the Sensation Course. Because they’re only open for certain hours throughout the day, you might want to book your time in advance!
Ever wonder what a wolf looks like gorging on it’s favorite treat? Experience it at the Feeding Frenzy!
Let your kids explore the Kids’ Trek, where kids of all ages can enjoy the playground…and slide and climb and jump. Entrance is free with park admission and open whenever the park is open, excluding days with excessive snow or icy weather. What’s more? Book your birthday or even here and let the kids have fun in a positive and learning environment!
What is a zoo without the animals? With over 40 species of native Northwest animals, this animal sanctuary offers each animal love and opportunity to thrive within their walls. From Big Cats to Canines and Free-Roaming Herbivores, they have a variety of animals to search for in the wilderness!
Many zoos focus on all the animals, but Northwest Trek has an expert local vibe because they focus on animals you might see if you take a deep trek through the mountains – hence the name! An amazing experience with tons of attractions and engaging educational opportunities, this is definite must-visit!
