    Really nice trails. Possibly only suitable for the bravest of beginners due to the variety of obstacles. Great chance to fine tune your mountain bike skills both on uphill and down hill courses

    Lovely fun trails, few long hill climbs but when you reach the top you get a nice and flowy downhill with some fun technical features and jumps along the way.

    The trails are ranged from green to black, so there is something for everyone to enjoy.

    Red graded MTB trail with some Black grade options. Some steepish climbs but nothing too long. Some great descending on Upper and Lower cliff sections. Should be do-able for most people with a reasonable level of fitness, Just take your time and enjoy.

    The better section of the cannock chase (official) trails. Some fun descents without any horrendous climbs

    New additions to trails have opened in the last month or so! (May 2021) The blue has added some nice sections that give opportunity for progression with some easy berms and pump sections. The red some new jumps, berms and rock gardens at the start near the trail centre and birches valley car park
