Overview

Starting at Formby Railway station we have a small section of road walking and then pick up the tracks through the woods before reaching the beach. Once on the beach we will make our way to the Fisherman's path. We will then make our way back through the Dunes and the woods via the National Trust nature reserve. This is a flat walk but can be difficult if the sand is very dry,
