Wild Walk

Walk up a trail of bridges to the treetops of the Adirondack forest. Visit a four-story twig tree house, swing on bridges, clamber over a spider’s web or climb to the full-sized bald eagle’s nest at the highest point.



Outside you can walk woodland trails, head to the river to canoe with a guide, explore Wild Walk, or discover the magic of the Pines Play Area, a wild playground in the forest where children can connect to their inner Huck Finn.  There are 115 acres to explore.
