Part of Limerick Township's ambitious plans to build a network of multi-use greenways, the paved Limerick Trail currently extends nearly 2 miles through the southeastern PA municipality.
The trail currently begins at Limerick Road and extends west, crossing Lewis Road to a dead end behind the Ashford Estatres subdivision, immediately east of Route 422. Plans call for the trail to be extended north to Limerick Center Road in the near future. Like the Skippack and Powerline trails further east, the greenway follows a utility corridor that accomodates two high-tension transmission lines and at least one pipeline. Although the lack of trees makes the trail hot in summer, the corridor features a surprisingly diverse, meadow-like environment where trail users can observe colorful wildflowers and an assortment of wildlife. A small wetland and terraced gardens near the apartment complex that the trail passes southeast of Lewis Road further enhance the trail experience.
Drawbacks to the trail include the fact that a trailhead has not yet been built, nor has a formal crossing at Lewis Road. Trail users are advised to use extreme caution when crossing this busy road.
No formal trailhead has yet been built. Trail users can park along streets in nearby Ashford Estates development, or use the parking lots of professional centers immediately west of the Lewis Road crossing.
