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

No it isn't. It is a walk through the top of trees. Therefore, it would be hard to make it handicapped accessible. You can't put an elevator in the jungle I don't think. You barely get cell phone service. But it is a... More
