Delamere Forest Park is very popular place to be in summer with day visitors, joggers, horse riders, cyclists 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 few 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 small free forest car park and verge parking slots will soon be taken. The forest features a large lake known as Blakemere Moss and for a short distance this route is quite close to its 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 map on the Walkingworld App; but if you follow the instructions very carefully you should not get lost, but take a paper map just in case.

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 strong trainers or stout shoes will fine; but boots will be best. 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 soon after you cross over the railway is a café and toilets. At the end of the walk, on weekends in summer an ice-cream van is often parked by your car park.
