The Baker Way links the heart of Chester with Delamere Forest Park. The route leaves Chester Railway Station and heads along the Shropshire Union Canal until bridge 120 at Christleton, where it then heads for Brown Heath before passing straight through Tarvin. It then crosses the A54 and loops around the back of Ashton, just missing Mouldsworth and then follows paths to Delamere Forest. The trail then passes by Fox Howl, the Forest's education centre, and crosses the Mid-Cheshire Line three times, the third time joining up with the Sandstone Trail for several hundred metres. The route then meanders through the forest to its end point at Delamere railway station.
