This is a largely flat walk like many on the Wirral, but one that on a good day is very rewarding. The Dee Estuary offers a wide panorama of marsh and sky, backed by the Halkyn Ridge in Wales with the tips of the Clwydian Range peeping over it. It is easy to follow and solid underfoot except for 1km, about half a mile, along the edge of the marsh. There are several ways in which the route can be shortened and in Parkgate there are several pubs, plus cafes, ice cream parlours and a fish and chip shop (of which I am particularly fond).

We completed(part) this Walk on 29/04/2013. Lovely sunny day, but Welsh Hills in distance across the Estuary shrouded in mist. We parked near Waypoint 12 - Free car park of Wirral Country Park(Note the Gate on the road to this car park is locked at 20:00) We took a short cut at Waypoint 15 and had refreshments in the Old Quay Pub - beer garden and the headed back to the Car park along the route. This shortened the walk to approx 4.3 miles. One point to note is that work is being carried out at the bridge at Waypoint 13. There is a small detour to get down to the the Wirral Way, but it is well signposted.
