Welcome to an elevated experience.
The Treetop Trail will offer a unique, bird’s eye view of the Minnesota Zoo. An inspired repurposing of the original monorail track, guests will be invited to enjoy the elevated 1.25 mile walking path through a beautiful canopy of hardwood forest. Connect with the natural world through self-guided experiences as well as exciting special events and programming.
Construction is underway and you’ll recognize changes to different areas of campus when you visit. Follow along on our Project Updates page for the latest images and information as the Trail begins to take shape.
A natural destination.
The Treetop Trail will be a continuous, immersive greenspace bringing guests up to 32 feet into the canopy, offering a breath-taking view of the Zoo and animals below. In addition to creating a sense of awe and wonder, it will connect guests with nature and inspire action to save wildlife in Minnesota and around the world.
