Hold on to your hotdish, the Minnesota Zoo is taking things to new heights - literally! Get ready for the Treetop Trail, a one-of-a-kind experience that will give you a whole new perspective on some of our favorite zoo animals.
Announced just this week, the Treetop Trail is set to open to the public on Friday, July 28th. This bad boy is 1.25 miles long and takes you a whopping 32 feet above the ground, making it the longest elevated pedestrian loop in the world. That's right, folks - we've got a world record-holder right here in our own backyard!
But wait, there's more! The Treetop Trail is not just about the thrill of being up in the air, oh no. It's also about getting up close and personal with some of our native Minnesota species. The entrance of the trail will feature a new habitat showcasing our very own porcupine ambassador, Quillber. Yep, Quillber the porcupine is ready to show you what he's got, and trust me, it's quilltastic!
And let me tell you, this trail is not your run-of-the-mill hiking experience. It's a whole new way to connect with nature and animals in a way that's accessible and immersive. It's like walking on air while getting a front-row seat to some of the most fascinating creatures in the animal kingdom. Talk about a wild adventure!
Oh, and did I mention that the Treetop Trail was built on a retired monorail track? Yep, the zoo took things to the next level and repurposed that old track into something truly unique and awe-inspiring. That's Minnesotan ingenuity at its finest, folks.
So mark your calendars, gather your friends and family, and get ready for an adventure like no other at the Minnesota Zoo's Treetop Trail this summer. It's a chance to see our beloved animals from a whole new perspective, and who knows, you might just walk away with a newfound appreciation for the wonders of nature and some seriously envy-worthy selfies. See you in the treetops!
