“An explorer is a friend to all, be a plant or fish or tiny mole!” Russell

Our ever-determined Wilderness Explorer, Russell, from the heart-warming movie UP, is the star of Disney’s Redwood Creek Challenge Trail!


Here your children can join Russell and become Senior Wilderness Explorers, too! Embark on an exciting adventure through the trail; meet challenges at every station, and complete quests for these awesome Wilderness Explorer badges!


· Tracking

· Bravery

· Rock Climbing

· Wolf Howl

· Animal Spirit

· Puzzle Solving

Earning these badges is very exciting and ambitious; but don’t worry, Russell left you clues in a map!


There are 6 bases along the trail, each with a special challenge. As you complete each step, you scratch off the circle on the map, reveal the badge, and become one stride closer to a Senior Wilderness Explorer!

You and your family are free to explore the trail in any order you wish! The journey is yours!
