Sandstone Trail ridge

About

Grade: Long distance
Distance: 18km/11 ¼ miles
Time: 5-6 hours
Map: OS Explorer 267

Stride out along the Sandstone Trail (AKA the sandstone ridge) and sample some of the finest walking in Cheshire. Follow the ridge of sandstone that rises dramatically from the Cheshire plain and enjoy this invigorating walk at any time of year.

The original Sandstone Trail officially opened in 1974. It has recently been extended so it now links the towns of Frodsham and Whitchurch. This not only makes it more accessible by public transport but also means you can enjoy some of the excellent facilities available in each town.

The Trail has been split into three sections of 18 or 19km or about 11miles which most people should find an enjoyable day’s walk.
