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!
