“Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

The canopy is amazing. There is an overlook of the land and is breath taking. I would definitely recommend this fun and natural place with all sorts of nature to explore.

“Beautiful birdseye view of area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

The climb above the tree tops wasn't quite as high as I expected, though it was a nice view of trees in the park. But climb to the top of the tower (76.1 ft ) and what a view you see - trees and water as far as you can see and not a single hi-rise! How refreshing! A must for anyone who visits the state park, if you can walk stairs.

“Tranquil! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

A bit of a walk, but fine for most. Excellent views from the top. Definitely worth going to if at Myakka!

“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

The canopy walk allows you to see great views across the park. It's not massively long but it doesn't need to be. Once you get to the other end you are able to climb a tower to experience even better views. It is most certainly very relaxing to take in the scenery.

“was not what I expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

After reading up online, I thought this would be a great day trip down from Tampa, we were a little disappointed. We got there at 12 only to find, the airboat only runs twice a day during summer, :( and then we got to the walkway and it is only a few 100 ft long and the tower is a great view and climb but we didn't see anything. We drove thru the park and the only wildlife we saw was a red deer. Seriously let down by the park, not much for trails and the fact the boat ride was not even an option really put a downer on our day.
