Very short walk from the parking area is the Myakka Canopy Walkway, probably less than half mile round trip.The walkway is more like 100-200 steps, but the view from the top is very good.

Lovely spot for photos. The kids especially enjoy walking tree high with nature. On our last visit however this was not accessible due to flooding.
