Robbins Vista View Trail Description

Robbins Vista View Trail offers 9 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.

Robbins Vista View Trail Reviews

My wife and I visited this trail hoping to get in a ride on our way to Marathon, FL. The trail is better described as a five foot wide asphalt path and is certainly not a good bicycle path, especially if you were to meet another oncoming bicyclist.

However this is a perfect walking and running path in a very scenic setting which is why I give it a three star rating.

I've done all 9 miles of this trail and then some, as this area is loaded with parks and other trails (Linear Park Trail, Debbie Chandler Memorial Trail, Lone Star Trail, Pine Island Ridge Trail, Vista View Park, Long Key Nature Preserve, Tree Tops Park, Westridge Park) It's just a wonderful place to get lost in.. Happy Trails :)

I bicycled 6 miles of this 9 mile trail starting at Long Key and ending at Long Key. Trail was paved all the way through although a part of it runs on sidewalks which I don't like as much. While on the street the trail is ok but gets better when it gets off the street. You get see a little nature hidden behind some housing developments and some very nice homes. Rode to the lodge but didn't check it out. Also, Flamingo Gardens is on the trail which is a nice place to visit if you want to stop. Trail wasn't crowded on a beautiful Sunday in February. Would recommend it.
