According to legend, when James Marshall discovered gold at Sutter’s Mill, he shouted ‘Eureka’ – ancient Greek for “I have found it.” You’ll holler the same thing when you find the Redwood Sky Walk in Sequoia Park Zoo in nearby Eureka.
Voted the #1 Best Aerial Adventure Park by readers of USA Today, Redwood Sky Walk seems to float within the Sequoia canopy, 100 feet above the forest floor. The sky-high hike is a quarter of a mile long. Every member of your family can thrill to this tree top experience; the gateway and 360’ ascent ramp are wheelchair accessible.

Nine inter-connected platforms and bridges offer incredible views of the plants and animals that live sky-high in the mighty trees. The Adventure Segment is a hanging, swaying bridge that will likely give you that fluttery feeling in the pit of your stomach as you creep across the cable-suspended span, far above the logs and leaf litter on the forest floor below.
