The Greenheart Canopy Walkway is a 1,010-foot-long aerial trail system suspended 50 feet in the air. The walkway weaves through remote areas of the treetops above the native coastal temperate rainforest at the end of the David C. Lam Asian Garden, which flourishes with flora such as western red cedars, douglas firs, and western hemlocks and fauna such as bald eagles, coyotes, and woodpeckers. Tours are fully guided and are offered every hour on the hour. They typically last about 45 minutes, though guests should budget 90 minutes for the entire experience.

Canopy walkway guests should wear comfortable footwear and plan on walking the entire time. Open-toed shoes, such as sandals and flip-flops, are not allowed on the walkway. Guests should also keep both hands free to hold on to the canopy guide ropes. Small children must be able to walk on their own or be carried in an approved child backpack or carrier; carrying children in one's arms or in any other fashion is not permitted. Strollers, walkers, and wheelchairs are also not permitted on the walkway.
