Wordsworth enthused about daffodils
"When all at once I saw a crowd
A host of dancing Daffodils;"
but very few of us will now see a host of native daffodils. If you walk this route at the right time of year, you stand a good chance of seeing wild daffodils, though 'a host' might be a slight exaggeration.

At any time of year, this route takes you to a narrow valley with plenty of wildlife. For a short while the noise of the traffic on the A55 above you is annoying, but this doesn't last long. Later the route gives superb views over the Dee Estuary, Wirral, Liverpool and beyond to Winter Hill and the Pennines.
Route-finding is easy. Underfoot conditions are generally good, though I suggest boots rather than shoes as some stretches can be muddy. Some of the stiles are rather tricky but kissing-gates are slowly replacing them.
The map implies that you might be able to see part of Wat's Dyke on this walk. I'm not convinced but there's no extra charge for looking out for it.
