Nature's Calling.

Tram TourNorthwest Trek is a place to unwind, explore, and learn.

Enjoy a comfortable Discovery Tram Tour through 435 acres of stunning meadows and forests. For 50 minutes, you'll get an eye-to-eye view of fascinating animals like moose, Roosevelt elk, bison, and more as they explore their natural habitat.

Every season offers something new: babies in spring and summer, elk bugling in the fall, and animals in thick woolly coats in winter. A friendly naturalist narrates each tour, sharing fun facts about the animals you're seeing.

DISCOVER AND PLAY

Let imaginations run free at Kids' Trek, the nature-inspired play area designed for toddlers to tweens.

Children can climb through a massive "tree trunk" with nets, build forts in the construction zone, play in tot-sized log cabins, explore an imitation beaver lodge, and scramble up and down ladder nets.

Northwest-themed features like native plants, a replica beaver lodge, and and statues of river otters and cougars make Kids' Trek a unique play to learn and play.

NOTE: Kids' Trek is often closed in icy weather during winter.
