Part of Manheim Township's growing network of multi-use greenways, the Manheim Township Bikeway begins off Kissel Hill Road, immediately north of the intersection with Landis Valley Road. Heading east, the trail passes the Hands-On-House and winds around the southern and eastern sides of the adjacent Landis Valley Museum, one of the area's major tourist attractions, to Valley Road (not to be confused with Landis Valley Road). This portion of the trail ends at Valley Road, on the north side of the Landis Valley Farm Museum. Trail users should make a sharp, right turn onto Valley Road, which intersects with Route 272, also known as Oregon Pike, about 200 feet to the east. The crossing at Route 272, a busy road with high-speed traffic, is poorly marked, and trail users should be very careful.
The trail resumes east of Route 272 and enters the Settlements of Landis Valley subdivision. Here, there is another small on-road concurrency along Henry Court, followed by a final off-road section of trail that ends at Hunsicker Road.
In addition to connecting two local tourist attractions and a few subdivisions, the Manheim Bikeway also indirectly connects to the nearby Heritage Trail via a side-path along Delp Road, and by signed, on-road concurrencies to several other points in the suburban township.
The trail is accessible from the lot for the Hands On House and Landis Valley museums.
