Canopy Walkway and Boylston Nature Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This popular park near Sarasota features North America’s first canopy walkway located in a subtropical forest. Canopy walkways have a sound scientific value, offering a way to study forest treetops that otherwise would be difficult to reach. Forests have been compared to giant stands of lollipops with all the sugar production taking place high overhead. And the birds, insects, and other animals that depend on them also spend much of their time well away from the ground.
The Canopy Trail is a short spur on the William S. Boylston Nature Trail, which explores a mix of open prairies, wetlands, and hardwood hammock. Both trails may be underwater during summer and fall due to rain."
