Adirondack’s ‘Wild Walk’ One Of World’s Best Summer Visits
Less than two-and-a-half hours north of the Mohawk Valley you'll find one of the world's best places to visit this summer. Tupper Lake's Wild Walk has been given that distinction by the travel website Conde Nast Traveller.
Wild Walk is a 1,250 foot elevated walk across the tree tops featuring a trail of bridges, a four-story twig tree house, a giant spider web and a full size bald eagle's nest. This trail is easily accessible to everyone, regardless of their age or abilities.
“It’s surprising when you get up there to suddenly see things in a way you’ve never seen before,” said Derek Prior, who led the graphics team for the project. “It’s not that you might have never climbed a tree, or looked out a window at a scene, it’s simply that walking along the treetops in a place you have never been, and because of that, you just see everything in a different light, and can start to imagine how our regular point of view, that seemed pretty big, is really just fractional.”
The attraction opened in 2015 and has since seen over one-hundred-thousand visitors. The Wild Center also features a 54,000 square foot museum with movies and live animals, as well as guided canoe trips. Get more details at WildCenter.org.
