Delamere Forest Park is very popular place to be in summer with day visitors, ice cream vans, joggers, horse riders and hikers, 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 very 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 huge car park soon fills up. The walk features a large lake known as Blakemere Moss which is best seen after waymark 12; (see general photo). You can hear the geese on it long before you arrive. Apart from all the dogs being walked, you won’t find many other animals apart from the odd squirrel. Near the end is a 'Go-Ape' area with supervised zip wires, climbing ropes, nets and aerial walkways. You can also hire Segway footpath scooters. It’s best to use the Walking World App for this walk as photos of the junctions all look very similar; but if you follow the instructions very carefully you should not get lost, however take a map just in case. This is one of five walks of different routes and lengths that I have compiled for this locality.

This walk is suitable for children, senior citizens and anyone in-between; and is also excellent for dogs, wheelchairs & buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled, and strong trainers or stout shoes will be fine. There will be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. At the start and finish is a large café with toilets and information centre. There are bench seats and sets of picnic tables at several locations on this route.
