Its observation tower rises 75 feet above the floor of the surrounding live-oak hammock, looking almost other-worldlyâ€¦like something straight out of James Cameronâ€™s film Avatar. Its 85-foot long suspended walkway sways amid the treetopsâ€¦much to the delight â€“ and sometimes trepidation â€“ of visitors making their way across. The breathtaking view from the top stretches for miles and is unlike any other in this corner of the world.
â€œItâ€ is the Canopy Walkway at Myakka River State Park. And this year marks its 10th anniversary.
