Walking in Cheshire

Explore the stunning scenery and wildlife of the region by walking in Cheshire, with hundreds of walks to suit all ages and abilities, there has never been a better time to enjoy breathtaking views, wild moorlands and rocky ridges.

Introduce the family to the joys of walking, with a hike up to White Nancy; the iconic Grade II listed folly that dominates the Cheshire Plain. Let imaginations run wild with a walk through the legend filled woods of Alderley Ege to Stormy Point, the setting for Alan Garner's novel The Weirdstone of Brisingamen.

If you are feeling energetic then stride out along the Griststone Trail, a 35 miles route that stretches from Disley to Kidsgrove or the Sandstone Trail, one of the most popular long distance walks in the North West.

If you are looking for something a little less energetic, take a leisurely stroll around one of the many towns and villages that Cheshire has to offer.

For self-guided walking holidays in Cheshire, Byways Breaks can help you make the most of the Cheshire countryside.
