This is a fairly easy hill walk, starting along very rural lanes and then sections of the major trails of Baker and Eddisbury Ways. The first half starts with a gentle climb taking you through Brine's Brow on your way to the top of Kelsall Hill. The last part is quite steep, but from the top you can see some lovely landscape views; and the return walk is therefore mainly downhill. There is a mixture of kissing gates and stiles, most are in fair order, but some are very wobbly, and some are half rotted away. You are likely to pass through fields with grazing cows, sheep and ducks. You may want to take a walking stick to fend them off if they get too nosey. There are four small footpath diversions to keep you further away from farms, and in winter some parts of the route may be quite muddy. You will pass close to a church in Kelsall.

The walk is probably suitable for children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. The children need to be well behaved as the route crosses a high-speed dual carriageway twice. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled, but boots will be best, especially in winter; and there should be few problems for anyone wearing shorts. On your route you will pass a Co-op shop in Kelsall near the church, and also some bench seats.
