Check out this "High Line of the Forest” in the Adirondacks

There is nothing like walking along the High Line—tourists and New Yorkers alike have been fascinated by its unique elevated view as soon as it opened. But how about a treetop walk amid the Adirondacks? Yes, in nature. Opening Memorial Day weekend (May 27, 2016) is Wild Walk, the “High Line of the Forest,” at The Wild Center.

Visitors will be able to walk along bridges and platforms high in the treetops, offering a bird’s eye view of the forest that only bald eagles had until now. In fact, there’s a human-sized eagle’s nest that you can actually sit in, as well as a massive spider web of ropes you can hang in 24 feet off the ground.

Kids and adults can live out their Ewok fantasies in a four-story twig treehouse, and walk through a giant snag (dead tree) full of as much life as a Manhattan high-rise.
