Very very muddy on the day I did this. Not surprising because you are walking in tractor treads in boggy fields. I can imagine in the summer/spring this will be glorious and whilst it’s a nice (harder than easy but not difficult) walk, it’s a bit desolate at this time of year. The walk is actually 5.1 miles if you count the walk down the long drive from the Red Fox pub. That said, apart from walking down busy Neston Road/Liverpool Road, the rest of it is fairly remote and off track which makes it a decent walk.

This is a nice, quite challenging route for when it's not too wet. It's otherwise very muddy in places, so much so the paths can't be crossed and you will need to climb around them.Be careful if you have a dog as there are three stiles to cross... My German Shepherd only just managed them. There are also a few roads and several fields in which you will need to keep your dog on a lead because of the sheep.

A very pleasant and almost atmospheric walk along the shoreline.

Easy walk and plenty of detours available. We saw one Red Squirrel but there were lots of people out with pets too, so you can imagine they'd all be hiding away. Nice woodland and open expanses of sand dunes.

Think this walk needs a little TLC in places. Lucky it was just me & my hubby walking as not very good for children in my opinion. The sun shining made this walk enjoyable.

Excellent flat walk along tidal flats out to island. Need to check tides, search Hilbre Island Tides on the Interwebs.

It's a lovely walk and the views of Wales are great

Great walk with a little bit of everything

We love this park. We can walk all along the coast from Wirral country park (Thurstaston), to either West Kirby for the beach in one direction or Parkgate for the delicious ice cream! We love to walk here with our young children and there is also direct access to Thurstaston beach and wonderful hills to enjoy. Lovely day out, especially when the sun is out and plenty of picnic benches.

We live locally and still love to do this walk. Look out for seals by the old lifeboat station!

I am new in the area it was a very pleasant ride around, the temperature was amazing for this time of the year, 19C end of February, I was able to take some lovely photos, It is definitely a go again area

Very muddy. Very fun. Flat but the mud makes it challenging. So we feel like we've had a good workout. The Red Fox can be very busy on a Sunday so book in advance or wait at the bar for a while as it's worth it. The Maze only opens in the summer holidays as it needs ...maize, but Brimstage is worth a quick mooch through. Ice cream shop shut too. Very pretty restaurant there called The Mouse. They'll let you have a just a drink and has a mini farm shop. There is a miniature horse knocking about too. Great day love the app

It's a nice gentle walk on the sands and when the Sun is out shining it's a bliss! Wish it was that easy to walk across Wales! :-)

Please check the tide times before you set out. There is an information board with the tide times and walk guidance at the start on the corner of Dee Lane and South Parade

Watch out when walking around the islands. The sand is covered in oil but it’s not visible until you start walking on it.

These islands are in Merseyside not Staffordshire. Caution - The route is only passable at low tide.

It is a nice place to walk and relax. We saw seals swimming and playing near the beach. Worth visiting it.

Great walk in nice weather. Walk through the path of all the islands or risk of quicksand.

A lovely walk out to the island.

We did the walk on a nice day in June, getting distracted as we went by geocaching. An enjoyable and interesting walk.

A pleasant, easy walk, although the slopes might be difficult for those with limited walking abilities. It was lovely to see the red squirrels.
