Chester: Around the Caldy Valley Nature Park

This walk in the outskirts of the city is circular through areas of wetland, woodland, and meadows. The described route follows Caldy brook and covers most of the park as the area is quite small. Many of the footpaths are tarmacked and no gradient is steeper than 1:10. You may also want to sit and watch the dragonflies in the wetland section. (The photo on the right shows the central pond). You can deviate from the route and easily go your own way to explore without getting lost. If you tire on the walk, you can abandon it any point by returning to the cycle track and following it uphill back to your vehicle.

This walk is good for all the family and any footwear will be suitable. Excellent for dogs and most of the park is also good for wheelchairs and buggies. There are no refreshments or toilets, but there is an Indian take-a-way just across Chester Road at the start of the walk, and half a mile to the south of the walk starting point is the Rake & Pickle Inn where you can find toilets and good food. There are several bench seats where you can relax but no picnic tables. The standard map is hard to follow, so in the 'Related downloads' section of this walk you will find a jpg file of an enlarged map of the track with waymark locations.
