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!

Great view above the tree tops. Beautiful canopy walkway and very well built. It's a wonder how the hard work it took to build this.

Unless you're in the area, the Canopy Walkway is not worth the travel. It's simply a suspension type bridge at tree top level in the middle of a forest. Regrettably, Florida is as flat as it gets so your view is tree tops in all...More

One-span walkway through the trees with a lookout tower (above the canopy) at one end. Thanks to Florida's topography you can see quite a distance in every direction. It's cable-supported, making it a little nervy as you climb to the top of the tower -...More

Hike up to the top of the tower for a great view that goes for miles and miles! We went on a windy day and there was a little sway at the top.

This was a nice evening surprise. A short swinging bridge leads you to more stairs that leads to an awesome view.

This is an excellent trail that takes you up above the tree canopy. Many steps required but the whole trail/tower is well done and very sturdy. Excellent views at the top. A bit narrow at the very top, but you can get excellent views of...More

I quite enjoyed going on the canopy walk, this was my first time and I'm happy that I did. Taking you through the forest and above the trees, it was a fun surprise.

Is the Canopy Walkway something we could do with a (just turned) 2 year old? I assume we could go and just not take her across the bridge. Has anyone gone with a 2 year old?
