Walk This Way

Through the Treetops with Redwood Sky Walk…

The California Adventure District has a new must-see experience.

There’s something epic about the redwoods in Humboldt County, and it’s a special experience to be amongst the world famous giant trees, whether it’s for a couple days or just for a lunch break. Having that sprawling canopy of green above and all around you is a magical feeling.

However, one thing that might not immediately come to mind when you see them is to climb them. Well, thanks to the City of Eureka, you can now experience those sky-high views and atmosphere without climbing the trees.

At the Sequoia Park Zoo (the oldest accredited zoo in California, established in 1907), they have installed the Redwood Sky Walk, a fantastic series of suspended bridges and platforms, rising 100 feet above the forest floor.

This spectacular experience allows you to stroll for almost a quarter mile (there and back) high above the ground, submerged amongst the redwoods. It is the longest Sky Walk in the western United States.

Cost for the family-friendly Redwood Sky Walk is $24.95 for adults, $12.95 for children ages 3-12, and free for kids under 2, and tickets include zoo admission. •

NEW: California Adventure District now has its own radio show! Listen every Saturday morning at 8 am to 1640 AM or 96.5 FM and plan for a great summer.
