Wild Walk gives NY museum visitors treetop view of forest

A new wooden walkway in New York’s Adirondack Mountains takes nature lovers on a tour of the treetops to let them experience the forest from the perspective of the birds and beasts that live there.

The $5.5 million Wild Walk is set on the 80 wooded acres of the Wild Center, an interactive natural history museum in Tupper Lake, NY.

It opened Saturday, July 4, 2015. The elevated trail has a series of winding bridges and platforms 40 feet above the ground.

Visitors can climb through a realistic four-story replica of a hollow pine tree, gaze at Adirondack peaks from a lofty eagle’s nest or bounce in a giant spider’s web.

Museum director Stephanie Ratcliffe says the Wild Walk expands on the nature center’s work of connecting people with nature.
