Long Key State Park

A beautiful 965-acre state park to observe the wildlife both in, on and around the water. Kayak or canoe through 1 of 3 trails following self-guided brochures. Take the Long Key Lakes canoe trail and glide through the parks shallow water lagoon (canoes available for rent) and see loggerhead and green sea turtles, horseshoe crabs, mullet, snapper and starfish or explore the area via two hiking trails. Golden Orb Trail winds through 5 natural habitats to an observation tower with a great panoramic view of the island and takes about 40 minutes to walk while the Layton Trail is shorter, about a 15 minute walk, and runs along the bay where you might catch sight of bonefish or redfish in the shallow grass flats. There are also ranger guided walks December-May at 10AM which provide a great learning experience about the history and ecology of the area. Make it a full day with facilities for picnics, a beach area for snorkeling over shallow seagrass, public showers as well as 60 campsites for overnight stays.
