‪We walked the trail over 3 days in mid November. Having never walked in this area before, we were somewhat sceptical as to what the terrain would be like. Would it be too flat and lacking the wow factor of some of the more well known trails? Thankfully we had a great few days and would highly recommend it for a short backpacking trip.
We caught the train to Frodsham which puts you directly at the start of the trail. After a pleasant walk up through the town, you soon gain the ridge and some great views over towards the industry that dominates the landscape towards the coast. Don’t let that put you off. It’s fascinating and you soon turn away from it to follow a lovely section of ridge that is never too demanding. The remainder of the day is dominated by Delamere Forest that is obviously popular with locals, but it never feels crowded and the end of the day saw us on quiet secluded paths before we dropped to our overnight stay at Willington Hall which is just off the path. This proved a great place to stop. Excellent real ale and good food at decent prices. Recommended.
Day 2 saw some uneventful walking to start but Beeston Castle soon comes into sight and this spurs you on. It was a fantastic sight looming of the mist. We had lunch at the canal crossing beneath the castle which was a lovely spot. The Castle was closed unfortunately but we made up for it at The Pheasant Inn which was well worth the detour. Great pub, log fires and ale and a friendly welcome despite the walking gear! Bulkeley Hill was a fitting climax to the day before descending to the Bickerton Poacher for our second night. Good solid accommodation.
Day 3 was the highlight. You climb back onto the ridge and the views for the first 6 miles are stunning. The trail does deteriorate slightly in quality as you cross lowlands and field edges towards the final push along the canal. There is one section near Robberhill where we were almost knee deep in bog. The canal section into Whitchurch was pleasant but it does seem to drag on and we were glad when we reached the lovely town of Whitchurch to finish. We stopped at the excellent Reubens Rooms. Some fantastic pubs in town and the best night of the trip.
Top Tips;
Long trousers are a must. It’s overgrown and nettlebound in parts. Gaiters also useful for day 3 fieldwork.
You do not pass any shops en route. We packed 3 days worth of packed lunches.
Don’t underestimate the canal section at the end. It’s lovely but drags.
Try and coincide day 2 with Beeston Castle opening times. Felt like we missed out.
Plan a night in Whitchurch to finish.
Both said we’d highly recommend it if you’re looking for a chilled few days away in an area that perhaps doesn’t automatically spring to mind.‬

‪Great walk - steep incline in parts. Dogs loved it! Kept dogs on lead when we were close to the sides or up high just incase. Beautiful view!‬

‪Completed the walk yesterday with my wife, doing it in four leisurely sections of 10,9,8 and 10 miles (inc detours) from Whitchurch to Frodsham during partial Covid lockdown.

On the whole, the route is very pleasant and varied and hardly any of it on roads.
It is generally well signposted except for the Frodsham end. There is a lack of signage in both directions from the centre of town to the Woodhouse Fort, and the apparent split of two route options is confusing. One should be signposted as an alternative route.
Best sections are around Bickerton - Beeston and Delamere - Frodsham.
The section from Whitchurch to Bickerton is low level, canal and fields.
In late summer, there are some overgrown stretches which are almost impassable if you are wearing shorts due to brambles and nettles, particularly Ash Wood near Tarporley. It looks like much investment has been made in new stiles, especially in the are to the South East of Kelsall. Some of the paths on Frodsham hill could be considered as dangerous as they are near to cliff edges.

On the whole we enjoyed the route and would recommend the trail to any keen walkers. The Pheasant Inn and the Boot Inn at Boothsdale are both worth the detours.‬

‪Really enjoyed our two days walking the trail. Well-marked, mostly, although we had navigational backup! Would highly recommend. We did 14 miles/19 miles and stopped off at the Pheasant Inn - great stopping point. Dog enjoyed - some livestock and some grouse so he was on the lead quite a lot.‬

‪Just completed the walk in 2 days first day encountered not the best weather - please note do not wear shorts as some if the path is overgrown with bushes and nettles - I found the Sandstone Way guidebook invaluable. The last few miles along the canal are hard going and Whitchurch is not inspiring but I fuld the miles after Bickerton through the fields beautiful. Well worth it and a sublime walk - will do again.‬

‪walked the whole trail in one day - from frodsham monument at the bears paw pub to the stone arch at whitchurch. took 12 hours to complete including breaks and was hard going the final stretch. sandstone trail signposting not great at the cheshire half of the walk and we struggled to find the right way go 2/3 times (especially delamere forest) as some signs are either difficult to spot or overgrown with bushes and such. a map is a great tool just in case. there are steep parts with stunning views as a reward and the trek through lowland fields towards beeston castle was a highlight. the second half of the trail towards whitchurch is numerous fields with horses sheep and unfriendly cattle (bulls in particular!!) so not for the feint hearted especially when tired. the final stretch is a long slog along the canal tow path and through a new housing estate - so not the greatest end - but overall we enjoyed it and pushed through the pain barrier feeling great to say we finished it in a day :)‬

‪We stayed in Peckforton Castle. We started from there and walked to Beeston castle. Super views although quite muddy in places after all the rain. ‬

‪This is a five-mile walk encompassing Bulkely Hill and Raw Head, mostly along the Sandstone Trail. The views over the plains in all directions were superb.‬

‪After completing the trail over 2 days in April, we decided to walk it again in June. In April, parts were muddy, but we fell in love with the trail.

In June it was unrecognisable, the trail at some parts completely overgrown with brambles and nettles (5 feet plus in height), the trail looks unused and this has made some parts extremely difficult to navigate.

We will definitely do this again, but only when the the foliage has died off, or not yet as grown as June.

Avoid End of May until December!‬
