Both routes leave Arrowe Park onto Arrowe Brook Rd then head to Irby Mill, Farmers, Caldy to the Wirral Way into West Kirby, then follow Wirral Circular Trail to Hoylake, Leasowe, Derby Pool. At Derby pool the Bluebell route leaves promenade at third roundabout and heads inland under the railway bridge onto Sea Rd. For Vale Park the route carries on along prom to Marine Lake and then up river to Vale Park. Both routes are flat, surfaces mostly good, although the Wirral Way can be dirty, and path between Dove Point and Derby Pool is a bit poor for narrow tyres due to the surfaces.
