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 went with a group of friends on the sensation zip line course. There were 5-6 zip lines and 12-16 obstacles. The training session before hand was thorough and the double click system guaranteed safety. We had a blast and would do this again.

Northwest Trek is a unique zoo like park. It has some pens setup with space for cats, wolves, foxes, bears, and owls to be viewed in. They have plenty of space to move about, but also a lot of places to hide. Depending on the...More

Son, daughter-in-law, and their 11 year-old son and 8 year-old daughter went on the Green zip line. Not just a straight-line slide; more like an obstacle course BUT with safety lines always available. Ending slide was gentle. They all thought it was great fun. The...More

I was extremely disappointed. It cost us almost $80 for three adults and a child to enter the park. There was a fair amount of walking with barely any animals to view. Several exhibits were closed, the few animals that were available to view were...More

I wish they would update their website to say how many animals are “off exhibit”. I was a little disappointed in how many animals were no longer there for various reasons. It was clean and fairly well maintained. Not many employees around to answer questions,...More
