I found this quite exhilarating for a short walk, with a fair amount of ups and downs in an area where only the middle section is much walked. The walk above the sandstone cliffs is of course, the highlight of the walk, with the extensive view north of the great bend of the Mersey as it turns towards the sea. Even the huge ICI works don't look too bad from up here, while the Welsh hills are always somewhere on the horizon. The Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool was very clear on the day I did this walk, as were the Pennines.
