It’s not always the highest hill that has the finest view, which is great news for those walkers who don’t appreciate a long uphill slog as part of their walking day. 

And all three of these walks reward a small climb with 360-degree (or near enough) views of Welsh Border landscapes.

ROUTE 1 – A good family walk on the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge

ROUTE 2 – There are a few steeper sections on this thoroughly rewarding walk

ROUTE 3 – An easy walk with great views, and very little effort required to enjoy them
