Old Pale trail - hard circular walk

With hourly trains from Manchester and Chester, Delamere Forest and the Old Pale walk is a great place to explore at any time of year.  

Using forest gravelled tracks and purpose-built stoned paths up the hill you will be rewarded by enormous skies and an endless view.  There are plenty of benches along the route to encourage you to stop and take it all in.
