Kissel Hill Commons Trail Description

A part of Manheim Township's network of multi-use greenways, the mile-long Kissel Hill Commons Trail extends across the mixed use subdivision for which it is named in the suburbs north of Lancaster.

The paved, mostly flat trail begins at Wallingford Road, immediately west of Kissel Hill Road, and near the commercial section of the development. The trail parallels Kissel Hill Road for its first quarter mile, crossing Farnum Road and then ascending one of the few small slopes on the route. The trail turns in a more southwestward direction about halfway between Farnum and Jake Landis roads, passing between yards to adjacent homes. Trail users have the option of turning from this section onto a branch path that connects to Jake Landis Road or staying on the main path, which turns sharply to the west, crossing Wallingford Road a second time. West of here, the trail passes a small playground, then follows the south shore of a lake before connecting to Wallingford Road a third and final time. As a result of its proximity to the playground and lake, this segment is very popular with local residents and flocks of ducks and geese can often be seen. The lake also provides some spectacular views, especially at dusk.

Although the trail formally ends just west of the lake, a short jaunt along Wallingford Road, followed by a left on Ashford Drive will lead users to the network of trails that loops around the campus of Landis Run Intermediate, Manheim Central High and John Henry Neff Elementary schools, providing an indirect connection to Neffsville and the Manheim Township Park Trail. The township also plans to eventually construct a trail along abandoned sections of Jake Landis Road, which would provide a connection east to Oregon Dairy.
