Myakka Park is a great place to bring people from out of town, you can take them to see the alligators, walk about, and also to visit the Canopy Walkway. As you can probably guess, this is not a place that you would want to...More

This is Florida- - so bring bug spray! Beware: I was greeted with a few friendly bees at the top of the towers along with several Fla noseeums /gnats. Also, even though this is Florida, it does rain. We are the Sunshine State but we...More

My wife and I spent our anniversary weekend in Sarasota, and we decided to go here and do some hiking. The park is well-maintained and at 9AM, there were very few other people. The canopy trail was really nice as well, and it offered a...More

I try to get here at least once a week. You can do this ten times in one workout and never get tired of the view each time you make it to the top.

The park itself is great, with lots to do, including this walkway in the trees. It's a short distance, but unique.

Took a day trip out to Myakka for the canopy walkway specifically it was a very nice park and the canopy walkway had a beautiful view. The area was well kept and clean. We had a wonderful experience.

The canopy walk is a short (85ft in length) walkway suspended 25ft up in the canopy, with a 75ft observation tower at one end. The walk can be accessed from the Nature Trail trailhead. After a short walk down the nature trail, you will come...More

The Myakka Canopy Walkway is disappointing if you are expecting a great treetop experience. It is very short, only about 100 feet long. It has a nice treetop view, but you cannot linger very long to enjoy it because it is so narrow that no...More

I've been to elaborate equatorial jungle tree-top walkways before, and this isn't that: it's only about three spans. But it is lovely to get up into the tree canopy and see the mosses and ferns up close. Makes you appreciate the old unspoiled Florida. Steep...More

When you look in TripAdvisor it looks like two separate locations. This is inside the state park very close to the entrance. It is hard to go upstairs if you are in poor shape, otherwise is as going to a fifth floor. Nice view from...More
