I didn't find the view interesting. Mostly the tops of the trees.I recommend spending more time watching birds and alligators near the lake and along the river.

I'm not sure that climbing all of those steps is worth the return. A walk across a swaying foot bridge and a somewhat higher altitude view of the vegetation. Been there, done that.

We love Myakka Park, alligators, birds, wild pigs and an awesome restaurant all rolled up into one. What I love about Myakka is that you can never get tired of going there. Always an adventure always fun

The canopy walkway was inspired by similar walkways in Peru. The view from the top of the tower is incredible.

I was unable to go on the walk because of physical issues but the kids and others really enjoyed it. I sincerely regret I could not go on it, but encourage anyone else to do so when at Myakka

The Myakka Canopy Walkway at the Myakka River State Park was an interesting experience in the canopy. We were able to walk along examining the vegetation growing nearby. This capped off the airboat tour and the tram tour that we went on. Overall, a great...More

Not much to say. A 25m high wooden tower in the state park. It gives a woeful view over the park. Especially on the morning the view is fantastic.
