Redwood Creek Challenge Trail

Wilderness Explorer Russell and Dug, the friendly dog from Disney·Pixar's Up, want to help you earn Wilderness Explorer badges while navigating forested paths, rock climbing, swinging on rope bridges and zipping down suspended slides.

Junior Wilderness Explorers: Earn Your Wilderness Explorer Badge!

Russell has left hints throughout the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail to help you receive your Wilderness Explorer badge. Collect the clues to get invited to the Senior Wilderness Explorer Ceremony.

Don't Forget Your Map

Even the most intrepid explorer occasionally needs directions. Not to worry! The friendly park rangers will pass out a map of the entire Redwood Creek Challenge Trail near the entrance. Be sure to consult the detailed map — then head off into the wilds to complete your quest for badges in:

  • Tracking
  • Bravery
  • Rock Climbing
  • Wolf Howl
  • Animal Spirit
  • Puzzle Solving

You're completely free to explore the area in any order you wish.

Senior Wilderness Explorer Ceremony

Collect your badges and proceed to Ahwahnee Camp Circle for a special ceremony with Russell. Wilderness Explorer Ceremonies take place several times throughout the day. For show times, please check the Entertainment Schedule or the Entertainment Times Guide when you arrive at the park.

Need a Hand?

If you do need some help, just ask a ranger, who will always be happy to point you in the right direction.
