Manheim Township Community Park Trail Description

Part of Manheim Township's growing greenway network, the paved, multi-use trail begins at the access road to the Manheim Township Community Park and loops around athletic fields and a playground at the northern end. The trail continues south from this loop through a wooded area and circles around a second, larger section of the park, with athletic fields, playground equipment and picnic pavilions. It extends further south from this sectgion, paralleling the access road to Route 722.

The crossing of Route 722, a heavily traveled, suburban road, is poorly marked with no signage or crosswalks, so users should be very careful. The trail turns west immediately south of this crossing and parallels Route 722 via a sidewalk for about 1500 feet, then turns south into the Manheim Twp. Athletic Complex. It then loops around the eastern and southern edges of the complex to Weaver Road. Township officials anticipate extending the trail along the western side of Weaver Road south to Buch Ave. and it might eventually become part of a longer trail extending from Overlook Park north to Warwick Township and the Lititz area.

Parking and Trail Access

The trail can be accessed from parking lots at the northern and southern ends of Manheim Township Community Park, as well as the Manheim Township Athletic Complex. There are also connector paths to nearby subdivisions.

Manheim Township Community Park Trail Reviews

We parked at the south end of the park, just off Petersburg Road. There are indoor restrooms (very clean) near the parking area. We rode to the north end of the park then took mostly very quiet, neighborhood streets to the Brighton-Reidenbauch Park Trails about 1.5 miles away. There is a short section of busy roads (Koser Road and Buckwalter Road) but its less than 1/2 mile. The whole ride on both trails and the road sections, out and back was just 7.3 miles. There are several other short trails nearby and they're all worth a look.
