The first section of the route is along the edge of the old sea wall, now the edge of the Gayton Sands nature reserve. A short distance along the old sea wall is the start of your path over the golf course up to the high level footpath giving magnificent views over the Dee estuary, (See photo on right). The return route takes you along the Rope Walk where there was probably an 18th century rope works. Eventually you arrive at the famous Parkgate Parade ice cream parlour. The route then returns along the old sea wall beside the Dee estuary and past the 'Boathouse Inn' to the car park. There are four alternative walks in this locality of differing routes and lengths, 7525, 7519, 7524 & 7563.

This walk is suitable for children, adults, senior citizens, and everyone in-between. It's dog friendly, difficult for buggies, and not suitable for wheelchairs. Suitable footwear in summer will be stout trainers, but boots will be best in winter as some paths may be muddy. There will be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. There are no picnic tables on the route but there are numerous bench seats along the Parkgate prom, also several shops and refreshment venues. Toilets are available at the pubs, and if you book in advance, you should be able to get a good meal with your drink at the pub by your car park, an excellent finish to a good walk.
