Something not to be missed.

A welcome break from the typical beach day. $6.oo for a car load for entrance into the state park. Big alligators and interesting birds.

This was a great place to visit. I walked the bridge and climbed to the top on the other side. Signage could have been better to find this spot since there are so many places and spots to see here. It took us awhile to find this spot. I wish they had more things in the park like this!

If you like walking through nature this will make you happy. We saw turtles and ground torn up by wild hogs.

This canopy walkway is wonderful - you feel as though you're walking in the clouds! So much fun for children especially. The views are amazing.

There's a variety of things to do and see in the park but, one of our favorites is the Myakka Canopy Walk. It takes you up into the tree canopy and affords... More

We loved the walkway. It's a short walk to the walkway, and then great views of the park. We love the park overall, and this is definitely worth doing while you're there.

Love the canopy walk, especially at sunset. When you get to the top you can see forever. So peaceful and very relaxing.

It took about 30 minutes total to make the short hike to and from the canopy walk. Admission to Myakka State Park is just 6 bucks per car. No extra charge for the canopy walk.
