Ready to take a walk on the wild side…literally? One of the most incredible features of the Adirondack region is the wonderful Wild Center in Tupper Lake. The Wild Center focuses on educating visitors about the nature and wildlife surrounding us and living inside of Adirondack Park.The Wild Center has been around for more than a decade, and it’s a natural history center that gained national attention when they opened the only Wild Walk in New York.

After years and years of planning and roughly a year and a half of building, the Wild Center opened its Wild Walk.

This canopy walk in New York is wheelchair accessible and because you’ll experience an unforgettable adventure, this walk amongst the trees has quickly won over the hearts of New York.
