Delamere Forest Park is very popular place to be in summer with day visitors, joggers, horse riders, cyclists, hikers and Segway learners, (see photo); all enjoying the variety of the scenery. This circular walk consists of forest, numerous moss areas with lakes, ponds, streams and birds; criss-crossed with numerous tracks and paths. Most of the tracks are hard surfaced, wide and undulating but with no steep slopes and no gates or stiles. These are the paths that have been selected for this walk. On a fine summer's day, you will need to arrive early as the verge parking slots will soon be taken. The walk features a large lake known as Blakemere Moss and your route follows this part way round, sometimes close to the bank. You can hear the birds on it long before you arrive. Apart from all the dogs being walked, you won't find many other animals except for the odd squirrel. As the photos of junctions are all very similar this walk is best navigated using the Walkingworld App; but if you follow the instructions very carefully you shouldn't get lost but take a map just in case. This is one of five walks of different routes and lengths that I have compiled for this locality.

The walk is suitable for children, senior citizens and anyone in-between; and is also excellent for dogs, wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled and in fine weather strong trainers or stout shoes will fine. There will be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. There are bench seats and a few picnic tables at several locations on this route, and at weekends in summer you may pass an ice-cream van half way round. There are no other facilities on the walk.
