Trail description

Delamere is an ideal place to go for a walk. There are dry sandstone paths, lots of mature trees to shade or shelter under depending on the weather and Blakemere Moss, a lake ideal for bird watchers

Delamere Forest provides many gentle forest roads and trails ideal for the less able or families with children. In addition, Old Pale provides a superb new destination to walk to with spectacular views extending as far as Liverpool's famous skyline of cathedrals and harbour buildings.
