To call the Sandstone Trail "Chester" is a misnomer. It runs between Frodsham in the north and Whitchurch (just in Shropshire) in the south.
It starts in Frodsham town centre and climbs steeply to Frodsham Hill with an excellent viewpoint over the Mersey, with the Weston Point/Rocksavage factories alongside, and Liverpool in the distance. The route continues over Woodhouse Hill and then turns left to go through Delamere Forest. Delamere station is a little to the left. It continues through countryside to Beeston (the halfway point).
There follow a series of hills; Burwardsley, Bickerton, Bulkeley among them, before reaching the Shropshire Union Canal at Grindley Brook. The county boundary runs along the middle of the canal with the towpath on the Cheshire side. Finally it crosses the canal and goes into Whitchurch.
