This circular walk starts with a stroll through the pretty Caldy village, along bridal paths then up and across the heathland, pausing to gaze down to the Dee estuary and the Welsh hills beyond. Then onward to the old Mariner's Beacon. Then down and along the Wirral Way to West Kirby. Then through the town and round the Marine Lake, (photo on the right), along the headland, and finish your walk strolling along the Caldy's fine sandy beach. The heathland over Caldy hill and the viewpoint is National Trust land. The walk starts similarly to walk 7601, but takes a lower path across Caldy Hill and is longer as it will include the Marine Lake at West Kirby.

The walk is suitable for teenagers, senior citizens and everyone in-between. Excellent for dogs but hopeless for wheelchairs or buggies. As you walk through West Kirby all amenities are close to hand, and several also back in Caldy near the end of the walk. There are bench seats at intervals along the paths over the top of Caldy Hill, and along the headland south of West Kirby. If there has recently been heavy rain the paths could be muddy with numerous puddles so boots would be recommended, otherwise stout trainers will be fine. As you are likely to encounter prickly gorse on the heath avoid wearing shorts.
