I enjoyed this and So did my grandkids!

Beautiful views across the tree tops. Bit of a climb up the stairs so take it easy on the climb and rest in between. The wooden walkway is fun!

The canopy walk is a quick thing, but the park itself is amazing. keep driving/hiking through to see the many various birds, animals and gorgeous vegetation. The sunset is spectacular viewed over the Myakka lake! Definitely worth the $6 in parking :)

The whole Myakka State Park is worth a day trip. You experience some great outdoor Florida activities. Nice hiking trails, camping, and biking. Great place to see alligators in the wild. Great nature.

While the view was great - it was a fairly short canopy walk. The connecting forest walk was about a mile or so - and that was pretty interesting too.

Not suitable for those with agility or walking issues as the ground is very uneven and has many vines to trip over. However, that being said, we are in our late sixties and had no problems climbing the stairs and enjoying the view.

The walkway was shorter than I imagined it would be, but both the tower and walkway were a great chance to get a new perspective on the canopy. You can enjoy the walkway and still opt out of the tower, if you are afraid of heights or can't do all of the stairs. There's not a lot of space on... More

Don't forget to take the nature trail that is next to the walkway to the canopy. It is really a short walk but longer than the canopy walk. I wish the other trails were marked better so we would know where to go next. We will return.

This is a great park. The canopy walkway is really neat and gives you a great view of the park. The boat ride to see the alligators should not be missed. Never seen so many gators!

A good way to see over Myakka park and beyond. Climb the steps at one end and walk the narrow bridge to the other where you can climb even higher to the viewing deck. A little strenuous for elderly people or anyone with a health condition. K

It's a little bit of a hike up but it well worth it. The view is fantastic and the big from one tower to another is fun.
