Delamere Forest

Saturday 3rd August 2013

A family walk in Delamere Forest

Distance: 5km; Ascent: negligible; Dry; with Lynsey, Isabel & Olivia

We hadn't been to Delamere Forest since last year so we decided to head over there for our first afternoon walk as a family of four after Olivia's arrival last month.  Arriving at around midday we found that the forest was clearly a popular place to be today judging from the large number of cars in the car park!

After a picnic lunch we set off walking shortly before 1pm, headed past the visitor centre and followed the red waymarked trail past the Go Ape course to reach the SE corner of Blakemere Moss.

Continuing to follow the red waymarkers, we followed forest tracks on the north side of the lake to reach the Sandstone Trail, which Lynsey & I had walked in its entirety over a weekend in early 2009.

A little under a kilometre later we left the Sandstone Trail to return to the visitor centre for tea and cake after a pleasant afternoon walk :-)
