The Merrick Trail serves as an east-west commuting route in the western Miami communities of University Park and Westchester. Beginning at Tamiami Park, just south of the Florida International University campus, the paved pathway parallels Coral Way (also known as SW 24th Street) to just past the Palmetto Expressway (SR 826), along the south side of West Miami Middle School.
Along the way, the trail traverses residential neighborhoods and and a few pockets of commercial activity, like the Coral Way Plaza and Westchester Shopping Center. Approaching its eastern end, the path borders Francisco Human Rights Park, which has a playground and is located adjacent to the West Dade Regional Library.
Parking is available on the west end of the trail in Tamiami Park (11201 SW 24th St.) and towards the eastern end at Francisco Human Rights Park (9445 SW 24th St.).
