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

The canopy walk is fun, but it is all you plan to do in the park it is simply to small for the effort to get here. The park is splendid and we spent the full day here. The canopy takes 20 minutes.

If are afraid of heights not recommended or at least don't look down. And the bridge does bounce some and recommend only 1 or 2 people at one time go across but what an experience.

I didn't find the view interesting. Mostly the tops of the trees.I recommend spending more time watching birds and alligators near the lake and along the river.

I'm not sure that climbing all of those steps is worth the return. A walk across a swaying foot bridge and a somewhat higher altitude view of the vegetation. Been there, done that.

We love Myakka Park, alligators, birds, wild pigs and an awesome restaurant all rolled up into one. What I love about Myakka is that you can never get tired of going there. Always an adventure always fun

We visited around sunset & had the most spectacular views. Enjoyed the walk to the canopy & the unique ecosystem. The views from the suspension bridge & tower were breathtaking. Was a plus that it was almost closing time so my daughter & I had...More

most likely yes..but I would suggest checking with office upon entry....dogs generally are welcome in MOST places in the park, leashed and well behaved of course
