We came here today with the dog for a bit of a mooch and dog walk. The views from the top of frodsham hill were excellent and well worth the decent. We parked up at the free car park on Simons lane in frodsham, climbed to the top of the hill before heading back as it was getting dark early... More

The trail is actually very long and the best bits are around Beeston. St. Chad's church is a hidden gem, not visible from the road it stands in the middle of a field.

We often walk the section between Frodsham Hill and Helsby Hill as a circular walk with a coffee stop at the White Lion,Alvanley. Fantastic views towards the Mersey and the surrounding Cheshire countryside.A lovely way to spend 3 hours on a summers day or a crisp winters day

You don't need to walk the entire trail to enjoy this lovely part of Cheshire. If you want a variety of circular routes, park up around either Bickerton or the National Trust car park at Bulkeley Woods, get out an OS map and then just wander. Good pubs in the area including The Sandstone, The Pheasant and The Bickerton Poacher.... More

Have done the sandstone trail a couple of times, over 2 - 3 days camping along the way, plenty of campsites to stay at whilst enjoying the walk. Camp at either Kelsall or Bickerton Poacher. Great thing is there is a train station at either end, Frodsham or Whitchurch.

this is reasonably well sign posted, basically across the cheshire plains with a few outcrops of rock to cross over. Much better walking over the border in N. Wales

We aimed to complete the 34 miles in one day. Setting off around 5am on a lovely day, our efforts to get up were rewarded by some lovely scenery, excellent views and some interesting wildlife. Our halfway stop was the Pheasant at Burwardsley at 11 am. Not bad, 17 miles in 6 hours, we thought we'd be in Whitchurch in... More

The Sandstone trail is a long walk but really worth it. You can break it up a bit but we always try to go as far as we can, arranging to meet friends at the Sandstone pub afterwards. The views are amazing and you really work up that appetite for a good meal!

Had planned to try and do all 34 miles of this in one day. We'd already done a long distance one of 29 miles so we knew it was possible. Sadly, an injured leg meant we called time on it after around 20 miles and (lucky, lucky, lucky) ended up at a superb pub in Burwardsley. From start to finish,... More
