Thanks to Linda Bailey, Winterthur’s Natural Lands Technician, for contributing this blog post and lending her keen eye for both the landscape and photography!
As the trees reach their peak color in the Brandywine Valley, Winterthur is a must-see for those who enjoy the spectacle of autumn foliage (and who doesn’t?!). Winterthur is known for its many scenic vistas, offering outstanding views of the garden and estate. While most visitors are well-acquainted with the beautiful scenery from places like Magnolia Bend and the Quarry Road bridge, did you know that there are stunning views all over Winterthur’s nearly 1,000-acre estate?
With about 10 miles of roads and trails accessible to members and guests, there’s always somewhere new to explore. Here are a few spots from all corners of the estate with spectacular views. Although I could provide you with detailed directions to each location, I won’t deprive you of the opportunity of discovering the beauty for yourself! There’s still plenty of time before the last leaf falls, so be sure to visit before it’s too late!
