PREPARE TO BE AWED! Hop aboard a comfortable tram for a narrated tour of 435 acres in which American bison, Roosevelt elk, woodland caribou, bighorn sheep, moose and deer roam free. See bears, Canada lynx, bobcats, cougars, foxes, wolves and other native Northwest animals in natural exhibits along paved pathways under towering evergreens. Soar high in the sky on our Zip Wild set of zip line/challenge courses that test both mental and physical agility. All just an hour's drive from Seattle - but a world away. Say ahhhhhhh!

Just out of curiousity, does anyone have tips on how to go about seeing the elusive red foxes? I am thinking about going to Northwest Trek later this year (probably in the spring some time) and want to try and get pictures of the foxes there. I have heard that they can be hard to spot though it has been many years since I have been to the park last (probably 2009). Are there times when they are most likely to be seen?

Hi, we are looking at visiting in January, apart from the Bears hibernating, are there many other animals still active? Very keen to see American animals that we don't see in Australia. Thanks
