I have read Band of Brothers, and Beyond Band of Brothers and just had to see the area this great man came from and pay my respect. Since my son lives in Thorndale and i was up visiting i asked if we could visit this for Fathers Day, we did and it was great. The trail was a very nice bonus, take time to visit Dick Winters gravesite at the Bergstrasse Lutheran Church its about 3min from the memorial.

The Winters Leadership Memorial is a beautiful landmark in Ephrata, set along a fantastic, tree-lined rail trail. It's a lovely tribute to Major Dick Winters and all veterans who are honored there.

Nice historic landmark for a local veteran. It would of been nice if he was there for the unveiling. This marks the start of the trail, there are toilets thrown all around the trail with benches and trash cans. Long and is a good walk for avoiding the long way and it has some shops and other things like paintings along the way.

Beautiful walking trail that encompasses a few war memorials along the way. Everyone was friendly walking their dogs, or jogging.

This statue commemorating Major Dick Winters, who led the famous Band of Brothers in WWII, is located just off State Street in Ephrata. Go north on State Street, turn right at the light onto Fulton St., then the first right onto Railroad Ave. Park in the lot immediately on your left; the memorial is at the end of the parking area.
