Weekend Getaway

Experience the Adirondack wilderness and take in the sights and sounds only experienced by animals on Wild Walk, an elevated trail forty feet in the air across the Adirondack treetops. Wild Walk includes a four-story twig tree house, swinging bridges, a spider’s web for laying and playing, and a full-sized bald eagle’s nest where visitors can observe the forest with a bird's-eye view. Wild Walk appeals to children, allowing their imagination to go wild, as well as adults wishing to escape the city hustle and bustle for some incredible panoramic views, peace and quiet. The Wild Center, a natural history attraction in upstate New York, created Wild Walk and also offers interactive opportunities with animals, nature photography, beekeeping, guided canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding and much more. wildcenter.org
