Robbins Vista View Trail offers 8 miles of paved pathway through the Imagination Farms community of Davie. Much of the route follows the town's canals and horses can be taken along some sections (check the town's website for details).
On the trail's western end is Vista View Park. What was once a landfill and superfund site is now a popular recreational amenity. From the park's hilltops, you can see Fort Lauderdale to the east and the Everglades to the west. Picnic shelters, playgrounds, basketball courts, and an equestrian corral are available.
Midway along the route is Long Key Natural Area, an ecological preserve run by Broward County. Use the parks' trail system to explore its scenic woodlands and wetlands.
On the trail's east side is Flamingo Gardens. In addition to its wide array of beautiful plants and trees, the park also features a wildlife sanctuary. Continue east and you'll reach Robbins Lodge and Preserve, which has an equestrian facility and horse trails.
