We stopped at NW Trek after noticing on our way to camping in Rainier. It seems this place gets little or no press. We noticed very official signs 10-20miles away. Only when we got there did we figure out it is part of the Tacoma Park system, I think affiliated with the point defiance zoo. We traveled with two eight... More

Though it's a bit pricey, coming to Northwest Trek is a unique oppertunity to be up-close to majestic elk with the majestic racks of antlers, moose, bison, mountain goat, pronghorn, deer, and caribou all just outside our shuttle and almost close enough to touch. Otter and beaver can be seen in their under-water viewing, and wolverine look surprisingly cute in... More

Even if you go everyday you will see something new. Babies out and roaming. Raccoons lounging in the Y of a tree. Otters swimming and playing. Beavers snuggling in their cave. In all the years I have lived in this area I had not gone. I wish I would have been going all these years. Take the trip on the... More

Driving up the west coast USA on a road trip from Australia we hoped to see native wildlife and we had seen Elk in the Redwood area (amazing). However we love animals and wanted to see how beautiful the woodland animals of North America are! So we took the drive out from Seattle - east drive using our GPS. It... More

Our niece took us here with her kids (7 & 9) because she said it was a good experience for young and old. It is good to see the animals relatively cage free. There is a good conservation message passed along here, and it is stroller and wheelchair friendly. The tram ride is good. Food is available at a restaurant... More

We spent the day of July 4, 2014 at the NW Trek at Eatonville, Washington. It was a beautiful NW day, with sunshine like we get during the summer months and the advertised wildlife were out and ready for display and photography. We enjoyed the Bald Eagles very much. We saw all of the other wildlife advertised and it was... More

We were here with family to find something to do with younger kids. The zip line with ropes course sounded like fun. It was a hour plus drive from Seattle but after we got there we realized this was so much more than just a ropes course. Everyone had fun with the zip lines park of the park but it... More

We did the Adventure Trek and Zip lines. It isn't for the faint of heart, as you are alone on the adventure trail, which is why I think it was so much fun and challenging! The zip lines are decent (note you do this by yourself as well, it is very easy and adds to the challenge).but the real fun... More
