Welcome to Cheshire’s Sandstone Trail
Cheshire’s Sandstone Trail is one of the finest 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 Sandstone 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 — 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.
High on the Sandstone Trail
High ground has always been a magnet to walkers, and for most of the way the Sandstone Trail follows the dramatic, wooded sandstone ridge that runs roughly top to bottom across the Cheshire Plain.
With its beautiful scenery and broad, ever-changing panoramas, the Sandstone Trail is an invigorating walk at any time of year. It’s a natural elevated route that cries out to be walked.
By common consensus, it’s one of the best long distance walks in the North West of England, and probably the best Cheshire footpath. It’s among the best family walks in Cheshire, and a good Cheshire walk for dogs, too. Come and experience it for yourself!
