Ages: all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Sandstone Trail is perfect if you enjoy stretching your legs as the Trail stretches for 34 miles (55km!) across the county of Cheshire, which is still mostly green and pleasant.
The walk is beautiful with some incredible views along the way. Most people walk from north to south with the sun on their face and some great views of Beeston Castle, but the choice is yours.
If you don't fancy an epic hike (which you can split over several days), there are also a number of circular trails instead or you can choose to start at a specific point on the main trail and take a short stroll. That is what is so great about this place, you can pick the best type of walk for you and your family.
Some of the best circular walks are in areas such as the Bickerton Hills or Delamere Forest and there is plenty to see along the way like ancient Utkinton Hall, the earthen ramparts of Eddisbury hill fort or the Norman market town of Malpas. There are a number of sculptures to spot along the trails, plus milestones and plenty of wildlife. Dragonflies and butterflies are common sights and there are plenty of birds to see including kingfishers, kestrels and owls. You might also see otters, rabbits, foxes and squirrels so keep your eyes peeled and see how many you can find.
