Part of the township's ongoing efforts to create a network of multi-use greenways, Manheim Twp.'s Heritage Trail begins at Valley Road and extends south, along the eastern boundary of Landis Woods to Delp Road. From here, trail users have the option of turning east along Delp Road, and going back across Valley Road to the Hands-On-House and Landis Valley Museum, or continuing south, crossing Landis Run and adjacent wetlands to the Worthington Shopping Center and development off Oregon Pike (Route 272).
The southern branch of the paved, multi-use trail also features a boardwalk over the wetlands, which, along with the woodlands on the northern section of the trail, create an island of open space in the suburbs north of Lancaster.
The trail can best be accessed from a trailhead that features a paved parking lot and kiosk at its northern terminus off Valley Road. However, it can also be reached from Landis Valley Museum, Delp Road or the Worthington Center.
The trail currently links with a network of hiking paths in Landis Woods, and township officials plan to extend it south past Nitrauer Elementary School and Lancaster Bible College to Eden Road, and north to Manheim Township High School, in the future. This will create a paved, multi-use trail that will run north to south through the heart of the township.
Parking is available at a trailhead with a paved parking lot off Valley Road, the parking lot for the Hands On House and Landis Valley Museum and at Worthington Center off Oregon Pike (Route 272).
