A short drive from the air boat tour site, the walkway is short but takes you far enough into the lake to see great views of the lake and wildlife along the way.

This is a wonderful day out and can be undertaken if you have a small budget without compromising any of the fun..... although in my opinion I wouldn't take children under say 8.....

Drove back to the boat tour first thing - it was kind of windy that day and there weren't as many gators out along the river as what we have seen before. Great tour

I grew up going to Myakka regularly and this addition is great to the park. Allows you to understand that FL really is a rain forest. Great education for those interested in life. It's hot bring water.

not just the canopy walkway but the State park. Go see some gators, visit the marshy area, climb the canopy walkway, even eat there and have a beer ( there is a pretty good selection)

We had a great time! The captain was so knowledgeable and entertaining. We all learned a lot. Definitely recommend getting there a little early to make sure you get a good seat.

This wonderful canopy walk brings you up into the trees to see the different ecosystems that inhabit the changeable landscapes. The kids love to climb and walk along the swing bridge. The view at the top is the best!

No it isn't. It is a walk through the top of trees. Therefore, it would be hard to make it handicapped accessible. You can't put an elevator in the jungle I don't think. You barely get cell phone service. But it is a... More
