There’s nothing more beautiful than the Adirondacks when the foliage is at its peak. While the leaves are brilliant to behold from ground-level and from mountaintops, you’ve probably never gotten to see them from tree-level. This fall, though, The Wild Center will give visitors the opportunity to experience the colors of autumn like never before!

Wild Walk, a new elevated trail that opened at The Wild Center in July, will be open through Columbus Day and beyond as long as the snow holds off. That means visitors will be able to wind through the treetops during Tupper Lake’s expected peak foliage season in early October!
In a statement, The Wild Center said, “Wild Walk will turn the autumn forest into a living, breathing, learning landscape. Onsite guides will help visitors sort the bright yellow birches from the purple silver maples and flaming sugar maples.”
Executive director Stephanie Ratcliffe said, “We have had a great summer, and the feedback on the Walk, where we took the roof off the museum experience and let the living world be the exhibit, has been tremendous. We’re really excited to be open this fall, and see what the color looks like from inside and up over the forest.”
People of all ages will enjoy Wild Walk’s four-story twig tree house, swinging bridges, giant spider’s web, tree core, bald eagle’s nest, and other attractions! When you’re making plans for fall in the Adirondacks, be sure to put the Wild Walk on your list.
