The Wild Walk
The second phase in the development of The Wild Center, Wild Walk adds a major outdoor exhibition and recreational component to the visitor experience. Its walkways, over eight hundred feet in length, rise from ground level to over forty feet in the air as they thread through the forest canopy, finally revealing an expansive view over the Adirondack Mountains. Ubertwig, Spider Web, the Snag and the Eagles Nest allow for exploration and discovery. Cable suspension bridges provide a bit of a thrill along the way. The genesis of the design was found in the form of the surrounding conifers. Exhibits, located on the several platforms, focus on the interpretation of life in the Adirondack woodlands. Wild Walk opened in July of 2015. Its impact has been remarkable!

Following its opening on July 4th, more than 150,00 people visited the Wild Walk during 2015...  almost trebling the Wild Center's visitation and revenues.

 

Broadly recognized as a  premier destination in the Adirondack Park, the Wild Walk's significant contributions further strengthen the already successful Wild Center.
