Discovery Tram Tour

When was the last time you spied a massive moose? Waved at a herd of bison? Turned the corner to see a majestic elk at the edge of a lake?

On a Discovery Tram Tour, you'll enjoy a comfortable ride through 435 acres of stunning meadows and forests. You'll get eye-to-eye with fascinating animals as they explore their natural habitat.

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

Discovery Tram Tours are about 50 minutes long and are free with admission or membership to Northwest Trek.


Get Even Closer

Photo Tours, perfect for shutterbugs, offer optimal views for taking beautiful photos. If you're interested in  animal care, book a Keeper Tour and ride in the back of the keepers' truck as they make their daily rounds!
