Everything you need to walk the Sandstone Trail

(One of Julia Bradbury’s ‘Top 100 Walks’)

The Sandstone Trail is an easy, well signposted, three day family walk with a variety of terrain and wonderful views.

Welcome to Cheshire’s Sandstone Trail. The Sandstone Trail is one of the best and most popular long distance walks in North West England, in the UK.

For many, it’s probably the best Cheshire walk and the ultimate Cheshire Way.

The Trail stretches for 34 miles/55 kilometres and offers superb, unbroken, and often elevated walking across the still largely green and pleasant English county of Cheshire.

It runs from the ancient market town of Frodsham on the broad Mersey estuary, in the north, to Georgian Whitchurch in rural north Shropshire, in the south.
