Lovers Key State Park is at the southern end of Fort Myers Beach. Take Estero Blvd. (Rt. 865) over the water. This is a lovely park for running, with good variety. Options are two miles along the beach, on the western end of the park, or the 5 miles of trails on the Black Island section of the park. There is a lovely boardwalk that gets to the beach. The trails are a combination of hard packed sand, to grassy trails, and challenging sugar sand.
The park has restrooms, showers, kayak rentals, and nature tours.Park Information Info on trails
