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!

The best time to go is right when they open for best chance of seeing all the animals. They tend to sleep in the afternoons and are harder to find.

The plants and animals are all native to western Washington. Small mammals are viewed by walking the trails past animals in comfortable looking native habitat pens. The large animals are viewed by riding a 45 minute tram ride through forest, plain, and wetland habitats with a guide. Also there is a new kids zone play area and a small hands... More

Took our DIL and two grandsons ages 6 and 1. Arrived about 11 AM and signed up for the tram ride. Visited the animals while we waited for the tram. Saw some presentations put on by staff. Informative and interesting. Were lucky to see feeding time after the tram ride and saw cougar, bear, and wolf going for their food... More

I wanted to take my fiancé here as I was a frequent visitor more than 20 years ago when I lived in the area. The tram portion was similar to my past visits and was very interesting due to the knowledgable guides. The rest is quite different. I liked the new bear habitats and some of the other forest animal... More

Great time at NW Trek. Ride the tram early or late in the day for best viewing of the animals. Lots to see. Well narrated.

You see everyday animals, deer birds, sheep. I came from Michigan so all these animals are not new to me. I guess if you have never seen one it would be ok. Only thing I wanted to see was a bear and of course he was not out. The tram was boring. She was talking about the deer and we... More

Northwest Trek is a great place that we visit with family members of all ages. Paths are paved and good for little ones, strollers, electric scooters or just strolling along. There are picnic areas, a great new play area for kids and lots and lots of animals, most roaming the wilds. (The bears, cougars and like are in large enclosures... More

We went with our teenage daughter and another family who had young children. What a beautiful place. They have all natural exhibits where the animals are in their natural habitat. Then there is the one hour tram ride around the park were you see the animals who live in the northwest United States in a huge area. Black tail deer,... More

We were in Washington for kids summer vacation. Coming here was an accident and we were glad we came. Nothing compares to this park. Not even San Diego wildlife zoo. Being from California, we truly enyoyed the animals here surrounded in forrestry. They have such respect for animals here. Animals are out in the wilderness and you are lucky to... More
