If you can climb stairs do take this in. The view from the top is great. You are literally above the trees. Don't forget your camera.

We made a wuick stop to the park on our way through Sarasota. The canopy walk is a short walk, no experience necessary and little legged hikers didn’t complain. The canopy itself is relatively short. The tower is 75’ up and can be quite dizzying......More

The canopy walk is only a few minutes (15-20 minutes) but it is worth the stairs to see the view from above the treetops. It wasn’t busy when we went - Saturday afternoon around 3:30-4:00. The earlier part of the day was spent in the...More

Did this short hike to the Canopy Walkway and climbed the tower to the walkway. Great sights, fun going through the tree tops and then over them. Highly recommend this!

When you reach the end of the walk the view is superb. You are way up above the tress and can see for miles. A must to do when at Myakka State Park.

While the top of the canopy provides a nice view, this attraction is very short-lived and not worth much length of travel just for this walk. You begin by walking up one tower (about 35 feet), then walking across the walkway (maybe 50 yards long...More
