The Greenheart Canopy Walkway is a 1,010-foot-long aerial trail system suspended 50 feet in the air. The walkway weaves through remote areas of the treetops above the native coastal temperate rainforest at the end of the David C. Lam Asian Garden, which flourishes with flora such as western red cedars, douglas firs, and western hemlocks and fauna such as bald eagles, coyotes, and woodpeckers.Visitors are invited to explore the Greenheart Canopy at their own pace as self-guided guests.
