I have walked this trail in parts and as a whole. It has a fantastic range of scenery and wildlife not to mention some excellent hostelries nearby to base your walks around. The Boit and The Pheasant spring to mind. The southern stretch to Whitchurch is much less interesting than the rest and so if you are doing it all... More

We did the Rawhead circular walk starting and ending at the Bickerton Poacher, and also the Beeston Castle to Bickerton Church but in reverse. Both take in various types of scenery from fairly steep climbs with fantastic views to woodland and farm land. You can download the Sandstone Trail Walkers Guide off the Internet and pick your route.

This is a fantastic experience for novice and experienced walkers , the walk is varied taking in heathland and hills ! the views are stunning over the Cheshire plain , there are also places that you can visit for refreshment such as the Pheasant ant Burwardsley, The Sandstone at Broxton ... The trail can be undertaken in easy stretches and... More

Do not buy the circular walk guide. The information on the Whitchurch area is incorrect. Makes one wonder what the rest of the guide is like.

I took my rambling group to walk the sandstone trail. As some are in their 80s we did it in 6 sections. We are planning to do it again backwards this time. That's the route backwards not us walking backwards. There is lots to see and the scenery is constantly changing.

Once when I was on the Sandstone Trail a girl said to me, "Where's the beach?" Since then I've walked nearly all of the trail and loved it. Some great pubs too - notably the Sandstone.

Some excellent walks, well signposted. You are able to do as much or as little as you want. This particular time we parked at the Pheasant and had a drink, doing a circular walk and returning there for an excellent meal.

I completed a 10 mile section of the Sandstone Trail Yesterday, June 19th 2013. The section from Beeston Castle to Rawhead. Parking by the castle is £3 per car. Take a quarter mile walk behind the castle grounds, on the left hand side as you face the castle. Then follow the path to a road, cross the road and join... More

Walk this path from Frodsham. To Whitchurch, excellent walk. Varied scenery, moderate difficulty, couple of good pub detours on the vary, especially, the Pheasant at Burwardsley. Really enjoyed the experience.

We finished the trail over the bank holiday weekend- from Beeston to Whitchurch but divided into two stages, rather than the usual three, as we are fairly experienced trail walkers. The walk from Beeston to Duckington was glorious with stupendous views to the Clwydian mountains and even the Liverpool skyline.Closer views were also often spectacular, given the relatively low height...
