If you really want to get away from it all, head to upstate New York, specifically, to Wild Walk in the Adirondacks, where you not only immerse yourself in nature, but you can do so from a vantage point that's high above the treetops.
Located at the 81-acre , a nonprofit museum and nature center near Tupper Lake, Wild Walk is a 1,250-foot-long elevated outdoor trail built directly over towering white pines — hence, the "High Line of the Forest" nickname. Designed by architect Chip Reay, Wild Walk features a four-story twig tree house with swinging bridges that showcases how animals live in the wild, an enormous spider's "web," and an oversized bald eagle's "nest" that's big enough for a family to fit into.
While at the Wild Center, you can also learn about the six-million-acre (larger than Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and Yosemite national parks combined) from naturalists, take hikes on nearby trails, sign up for a guided canoe trip, or go paddleboarding. In the museum building itself, get up close and personal with frogs, turtles, and other animals. Re-connecting with nature is the goal of the center, and you'll definitely do that while while exploring Wild Walk!
