PREPARE TO BE AWED! Hop aboard a comfortable tram for a narrated tour of 435 acres in which American bison, Roosevelt elk, woodland caribou, bighorn sheep, moose and deer roam free. See bears, Canada lynx, bobcats, cougars, foxes, wolves and other native Northwest animals in natural exhibits along paved pathways under towering evergreens. Soar high in the sky on our Zip Wild set of zip line/challenge courses that test both mental and physical agility. All just an hour's drive from Seattle - but a world away. Say ahhhhhhh!

I couldn't give 5 stars because the animal enclosures were too small and several of them were displaying nervous ticks. With over 400 acres, there is no reason the caged animals can't have more space! But overall it was a neat Park. The tram ride...More

There are walking paths and part of your entrance is the tram ride. Great for handicapped people. Not sure if wheel chairs will go on tram, but if person can be carried on --no problem. This venue is good for ages above 5 years old,...More

We really enjoyed our trip to Northwest Trek. While half of our group spent the afternoon on the Zip Line, the other half took the tram on a tour of the park. The atmosphere feels very calm and relaxed (at least during our mid-week visit)....More

Try to go in the early morning when more animals are out. The tram tour is ok, but they need to shut up the tour guide. She Talked for 50 out of the 55 minutes! Let riders enjoy nature and some piece and quiet! The...More

Hi porky1porky, our animals enjoy winter in the Northwest as much as they enjoy summer, and it's wonderful to see animals like mountain goats, bison, and gray wolves in their furry winter coats. Although the bears slow down... More
