The Wild Walk lifts visitors above the treetops of The Wild Center and the surrounding
Adirondacks in Upstate New York. Designed by Linearscape and open since July 2015, the Wild Walk echoes the surrounding pine trees through the form of Cor-ten steel posts that support the walkways. The architects answered a few questions about the project.The Wild Walk is part of the Wild Center, a 54,000-sf nature center that was completed in 2006. The Wild Center has been such a success that many of the original team members were invited back to work on the Wild Walk.Wild Walk is an interactive nature walk at the Wild Center, a non-profit organization and nature center committed to helping people explore and learn about the natural environment of the Adirondacks. Built in the forest, Wild Walk is designed as an elevated trail of bridges that creates a learning landscape; bringing visitors up into the treetops to offer a new perspective of the forest. The project consists of a series of platforms connected by bridges that start at grade level and gradually bring people 40 ft. above grade to look out over the surrounding woodlands.
