Introducing the newest eco-adventure by Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida, the Cypress Canopy Cycle! Sit back and relax in your own custom Canopy Cycle vehicle. Think of it like a reclined bicycle safely suspended from steel cables. Those cables serve as your track on a one hour round trip journey through some gorgeous parts of the Forever Florida Wildlife Conservation Area. The course covers varied heights allowing you to experience different levels of this natural area, ultimately reaching treetop heights up to 25 feet!
You’ll gently pedal your way through the pine flatwoods passing over palmetto, lopsided Indian grass and Florida’s beautiful seasonal wild flowers. As you head into Turkey Slough you’ll be amazed at the up close aerial views of this pristine example of Florida’s forested wetlands. Wind through the cypress trees and keep an eye out for bromeliads growing in the canopy.You may also spot some of florida’s natural residents along the way as you pass over the home of white tail deer and through the treetop habitats of woodpeckers, owls and countless other canopy residents. One resident you’ll be sure to enjoy is George, a 13 foot alligator who’s called Forever Florida home for over 60 years. You’ll get a chance to meet George as you pedal right over the pond that he calls home, all part of your Cypress Canopy Cycle adventure!
Relaxing, Fun and Safe
The Cypress Canopy Cycle can be enjoyed by guests ages 10 and up who weigh up to 275lbs. It's as easy as peddling a bicycle but requires no steering at all!

Once you begin your journey, there are no additional connections to make, just sit back and relax as you pedal through this one hour adventure!
