Black Island Trail at Lover's Key State Park

Pets are not allowed on the beach, but they are permitted in other areas such as on the trails and paths that wind through the park. For safety of other visitors & wildlife, dogs need to be well-behave and on a six foot, hand-held leash at all times. The Black Island Trail is 2.5 miles of hiking or biking adventure through a maritime hammock along the canal banks of Black Island. Visit Website

    I take my dog here every weekend!

    I take my dog on these trails every weekend and he loves it! Lots of new smells every week and very difficult to get turned around on the trail and plenty or rest benches throughout the trail. Great place to stretch your legs and your dogs legs out!

    Good walk

    Nice little walk through the park. It's shaded enough to keep cool during the hot hours.

    Beautiful grassy trails along the water.

    If you're going in the late Spring - early Fall, get to the park early. The first obvious reason is the heat - the trail is mostly open with patches of shade. There were covered benches along the trail where you could stop and have some water and let the dog(s) rest. Bring water - we have two dobes and one of them wore a backpack full of water. The second reason to get there early is because there is only one causeway to the beach and as it gets later traffic gets backed up. There were other activities that we didn't do, but would have liked to have done like kayaking.
