Getting to Know Wolfe Creek Preserve – Crow’s Nest Tower

Today, we will be featuring the third tower located on the world-class Wolfe Creek Preserve – the Crow’s Nest.  Aside from its unique design, this particular tower highlights tales of the Wolfe family’s international travels. For many years, Eli’s father, Isaac, traveled the high seas in search of adventure and fortune. And even before Eli himself was able to travel by boat he was mesmerized by the stories his father would bring home. Not surprisingly, in an attempt to be like his father Eli requested that he be allowed to build a “crow’s nest” instead of a tree house. And while the Crow’s Nest tower is considerably higher up than the original, it is a touching remembrance of Eli’s childhood and the affection he has for his father.

As can be seen from the photo, you will actually cross a sky bridge before stepping onto the Crow’s Nest, which provides an incredible 360-degree view of the property due to its open nature.

The Crow’s Nest can be experienced by Wolfe Creek Preserve visitors along our encompassing Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour, though we recommend that you secure reservations as soon as possible at as space is extremely limited.

Additionally, continue to check out the rest of the course during its various levels of construction in our image gallery and keep visiting to check on future updates!
