Plantation Canal Path connects the cities of Sunrise and Plantation in southeastern Florida, just outside of Fort Lauderdale. It begins in the county's Markham Park, where you'll find typical park amenities such as parking, restrooms, playgrounds, and picnic tables, as well as something more unusual: an airfield for model planes.
The paved trail heads east along the canal, traveling past neighborhoods and shopping areas for more than 7 miles. Along the way, keep your eyes open for water birds, iguanas, and turtles. Note that the route includes five major road crossings, so use caution at these intersections.

Parking is available in Markham Park (16001 W. State Rd. 84) on the western end of the trail.
