Mountain Biking Cannock Chase - Follow The Dog

*****   Add a review
#1 of 98 mountain bike trails in England
#1,291 in the world

A great fully marked out route, loads of single track with a few short sections on fire road. Its been properly planned and built so its rideable all year round and hasn't just been carved out by local riders. There are some great tight sections amongst the trees, sweeping turns and downhill sprints. There's a nice quick section of smooth high berms about 3/4 of the way round, fun but it's caught me out a couple of times. There's even a little bit of northshore and few jumps!

Getting there
Starting from Birmingham travel up the M6 to junction 11, exit and follow signs towards Cannock onto the A460, then follow signs towards Hednesford. Then get out a map and look for the Birches Valley Forest Centre. It's really not too tricky to find.

Rider questions

Q: Do you have water supply
A: There are taps in a campsite the trail passes through before the final decent or a cafe at the start of the trail that will fill bottles if you ask.
