Great place to spend a day with the family. Climbing up into the tree top canopy will bring out the kid in you.

This is a must do for adults, teenagers and young children accompanied with an adult. You are actually above the trees and can see very far in all directions.

Like other reviewers, I agree this Canopy Walkway isn't a destination in and of itself. It's something you do IF you are already at Myakka State Park. We had been to the park many times, but during the summer the trail can be flooded out. One time we turned back on the trail because we hit a patch of mosquitoes.... More

It's something to do and the state park is nice as well, but the "walkway" isn't a destination in and of itself. Cool to be above the trees but not much to see once you're there and as others have noted, it's a short span.

My kids really enjoyed this! We walked through a canopy of big trees and across a suspended bridge to a tall tower! It was pouring rain and we all still enjoyed it!

We love this state park and the canopy walk is a bonus. It's not as scary as you think. I'm afraid of heights and I go to the top everytime we are there. Enjoy the trails and the alligator spottings in the rest of the park.

If you like to look above the treetops like a bird and see this beautiful area, then take a walk thru the park and into the trees.

Wow are you high up- over 71 feet in this tower when you get to the top-- the suspension bridge leads to the tower and is fjun to walk across-- I felt completely safe on it-- its a bit unnerving to be on the very top of the tower though and you are really above the tree canopy. Highly recommend!

The climb to the top is not for the faint of heart. Many steps to the top. My favorite time to go is first thing in the morning. There is a field that you can often see deer grazing in the field.
