At the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, visitors typically go from one exhibit to the next to see the animals on display. Starting next month, some of the animals will get a chance to move from one part of the zoo to another to see the visitors.

The Colobus Trail is the name of an $800,000 overhead walkway being constructed to give the zoo’s colobus monkeys a chance to leave the indoor confines of the Chimpanzee Forest building, part of the zoo’s African Journey section, and explore the outdoors for the first time.
