Once when I was on the Sandstone Trail a girl said to me, "Where's the beach?" Since then I've walked nearly all of the trail and loved it. Some great pubs too - notably the Sandstone.
Some excellent walks, well signposted. You are able to do as much or as little as you want. This particular time we parked at the Pheasant and had a drink, doing a circular walk and returning there for an excellent meal.
I completed a 10 mile section of the Sandstone Trail Yesterday, June 19th 2013. The section from Beeston Castle to Rawhead. Parking by the castle is £3 per car.

We took a day to walk from Beeston Castle to Bickerton Hill. We started by visiting the castle and enjoying the view from there. It was such a pretty day! Once we started on the actual walk, I found it very well signed and easy to follow. So if you're beginner walker, this is a great trail to start with!... More
Easy to get to from Chester, and a wonderful variety of landscapes and terrains. Bring a packed lunch and your walking boots and spend a day in the lovely Cheshire countryside. Well sign-posted!
We have walked a few different areas of the Sandsone trail. It is always popular with ramblers and even takes in places like the 'Summertrees Tea Room' which has a great selection of home made cakes and scones, this is situated at the top of Willington.
