Wimpole's Multi User Trail

Explore further with Wimpole's new multi-use trail. 

We're passionate about getting people outdoors and closer to nature. Our aim is to make access to the parkland as easy as possible and make people feel comfortable about heading off into the countryside.

Wimpole's new multi-user trail provides an off-road circular route around the estate, providing even more opportunities to explore the woodland, parkland and farmland. The trail is 5.5 miles, or 8.5 kilometres long. 

The trail is multi-use, intended for walkers, runners, cyclists and adapted wheelchair users. It's great for families looking for an easy, safe route that can get them active and enjoying time outside together.

Wimpole is one of ten National Trust properties chosen to build new multi-user trails to encourage visitors to enjoy different activities. The all-weather surface also means more people can explore the estate whatever the season.
