“High above Myakka State Park”

Myakka Canopy Walkway
Ranked #15 of 144 things to do in Sarasota
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 16, 2012

When visiting the Park walk along one of the trails and climb up and walk across the Myakka Canopy Walkway, It is perfectly safe but if there is a high wind blowing the towers at either end sway a little. Tremendous view of the park from the top of the towers.

This tower first leads up to a fun swaying but very stable walkway, then up further above the treetops where there is a great viewing station looking out over Myakka and many miles of surrounding Florida country. You can see wildlife, weather, water and birds !

We have annual passes to Florida State Parks, so it's easy to get into Myakka River State Park and enjoy the trails and other activities. One of our favorite walks is the Canopy Walkway.

It's not as high as I imagined it would be, but the views once on top are amazing. It's not as long as I hoped it would be, but there are many different types of flora to view while up there. It's a bit of a hike up, so not everyone can make the trip up, but once there, enjoy the panoramic views!

When we finally did, well, we were a little underwhelmed. Kids would probaby like it, but really nothing special.

Myakka is a great park.. bring your bike and ride around the park. The Canopy walk is fun and most people and kids should be able to handle the steps up..
