Description
Waypoints (13)

Start your journey from Chester (The Cross), heading straight out to Boughton and turned off towards Caldy Valley/Huntington. Passing under the A55, you will notice a public access sign by the gate in which you cross over. It's at this point that the footpath becomes very faint and you are generally walking into a field, in fact, quite a number of fields - so it's recommendable to wear good footwear and clothing. You will encounter cow pats and muddy conditions - best to go when it has not rained for the past few days. Finally, you will arrive in Christleton for a suitable short break. Nearby, you will come across the large pond, making your way to the Christleton Cricket Ground - it's at this point, that you will have to go off track and cross over the gate to walk along the edge of a corn field - please don't walk through it. You will eventually come across a footpath. As you approach Fir Tree Lane, you will of course, notice a white gate with a sign stating 'Private Property' - you can go through, but please respect that this is someone's private land, but it is the only access to Tarvin Road (A51). Turn off onto Park Lane and continue along until you reach the Golf Course - this is public access, but you will need to stick along the side where the blue posts are located. As you approach Guilden Sutton, take a sharp left from Church Lane and follow the route around to Oaklands and it's a very straight forward route up to the Chester Millenium Greenway. Be wary of your surroundings along this long path of other hikers, joggers and cyclists (unfortunately you can't avoid). Admittedly, it is a very boring long stretch of pathing, but great for excercises. Turn off onto Elmwood Avenue to Kilmorey Park in Hoole and have 5 minutes break at the local Co-op on Hoole Road, before continuing your way back into the city centre. This is a great walk, but don't expect to find much in the way of seating and the route I covered is ideal for those hardy walkers.

First to Review

Great walk that took a little longer than expected. I tried to add as much info, but I was a little distracted by a local in Mickle Trafford, who advised me to walk along the Green Way Trail - nice pleasant walk, when you can avoid joggers and cyclists. It also helps to take a small bluetooth speaker...first, it music keeps you motivated and second, helps you to be aware of your surroundings. You will notice that I had to double back in Mickle Trafford, this was because I was told there was a cafe...sadly, due to Covid-19, I soon discovered that it was closed. Great walk though.
