Winterthur is a great place to walk and run, but with 10 miles of roads and nearly 1,000 acres of scenery, it’s hard to discover each and every path on your own. Learn how to make the most of walking on this famous country estate. Each calorie burning walk will feature a new path for you to explore. Be sure to dress for the weather and wear walking shoes. In case of inclement weather, please call our reservations office (302.888.4600) approximately 3 hours before the walk to check the status of the walk. Please note that this is a fitness walk.
