A special place...and great for kids. Not for toddlers.

Walk way up in the tree tops. See miles and miles away. Discover that a whole other world exists above your head in any woods. I think there are only 13 of these in the world... read more

Walk way up in the tree tops. See miles and miles away. Discover that a whole other world exists above your head in any woods. I think there are only 13 of these in the world and Sarasota has TWO! This one and the one at Marie Selby. Way fun!!!

This was unexpected...I thought it was just a short nature walk. Once we got to the canopy walkway we got to go up 74 feet and see above the treetops. There was a ton of flies at the top but spectacular views. The walk to get there is flat and easy. It was a little crowded but worth it.

Thinking there was more to this than there was. It was good for the kids. The tower that is attached to the walkway was worth it, more than the actual walkway. It is a short walk from the parking lot at least. You can see for miles on a clear day.

This Canopy Walkway is awesome. So neat to walk through the trees and walk up to be above the tree line. Amazing views

A must see at the state park. Walk the skyway and climb the tower (about 70') above the trees. Highly recommend

We enjoyed the view and the walk between the 2 towers. It was a breezy day and we could feel some sway on the canopy. My only disappointment was the canopy is too short so I hope they add another tower or 2 and make it longer
