There was a tram ride that took us through the park and was pretty awesome with the driver telling us all about the animals....we were on our own after that and able to see whatever wildlife we wanted to see

This was my second time visiting Northwest Trek. My previous visit was in April 2014. Few suggestions would be to get there for first tram (right when park opens) and sit on the left side of the tram cars two or three. We were not able to get into these cars this trip because they had big tour group that... More

NW Trek is worth the trip for many reasons. The drive to NW Trek offers amazing views of Mount Rainier. The mountain towers above you as you make your way to NW Trek. Once there, spend an hour walking the paved trails to the different wildlife areas. The animals are in very natural settings and the walk is just a... More

A very different zoo experience. The biggest part of the large park is a free roaming wildlife area for grazing animals. The most impressive are the Roosevelt Elk and the Bison herd. The tram ride takes you through this whole area and gets you very close to these animals. I have been on safari in Africa and this experience is... More

If you love to view wildlife, particularly, wildlife of the Pacific Northwest, then you need to visit Northwest Trek. There is an admission but it does include a tram tour which is the best way to see the herds of bison, big horn sheep, & Roosevelt elk. Not only that, but on our tram tour we got to see a... More

We love visiting the Trek! We go every time we come out to Washington state. The tram travels around the fenced in area where the animals roam freely. Every visit is different. You can also walk the pathways outside the fence to see other animals and birds that live in Washington. There are trail side demos and various informative classes... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for an activity outside of Seattle to do during our visit. I came across a recommendation for the Northwest Trek Wildlife Park. We had previously been to a wildlife preserve in our home town and loved it, so we decided to head there for the afternoon. We were very glad we did. The highlight... More

Look, I had never heard of this place but me and the gf wanted a quick trip idea from Seattle. Took a little over an hour to get there, wroth every second of the travel time. They get u very close to animals in a safe setting for a reasonable price.

Spent a wonderful day here with a 3 year old and 1 year old. Fun tram ride, lots of cool animals, a treasure hunt looking for them. This park is fun for young and old, easy to walk, for the really young you might want a stroller (or backpack), we brought one and were happy we did, they do have... More

Enjoyed the natural setting for animals. Go early in morning for best viewing. The team ride to see larger, free roaming animals was fun. I really enjoyed the experience.
