A bit of a walk, but fine for most. Excellent views from the top. Definitely worth going to if at Myakka!

The canopy walk allows you to see great views across the park. It's not massively long but it doesn't need to be. Once you get to the other end you are able to climb a tower to experience even better views. It is most certainly very relaxing to take in the scenery.

After reading up online, I thought this would be a great day trip down from Tampa, we were a little disappointed. We got there at 12 only to find, the airboat only runs twice a day during summer, :( and then we got to the walkway and it is only a few 100 ft long and the tower is a great view and climb but we didn't see anything. We drove thru the park and the only wildlife we saw was a red deer. Seriously let down by the park, not much for trails and the fact the boat ride was not even an option really put a downer on our day.

This is a special treat when you visit the park. Always a great place to take guests to see alligators and birds.

The canopy walk was a great attraction for our family. My 5 and 2 year old loved walking across the bridge and climbing up to the lookout. If you don't want to take the 40 minute hike to the canopy walk (especially if you have small children), go in through the exit of the trail and you will reach the canopy in about 5 minutes :)
