Staffordshire - Cannock Chase 'Follow the Dog' Trail

Take your bike off-road at Cannock Chase Forest

Not one for the faint hearted, the 'Follow The Dog' trail at Cannock Chase Forest is well worth a look if you're a keen mountain biker looking for an off-road challenge.

It's graded as a red (difficult) trail.

This classic cross-country mountain bike trail was first launched in 2005. The trail surface is very variable so expect loose stone, roots and mud - but there's only one big incline.

The 6.7 mile (10.8 km) route includes technical features you’d expect to find on a red (difficult) level trail.

• Flowing single track
• Medium berms
• Step ups and step downs
• Rock gardens
• Boardwalks
• Rollers
• Jumps and drop offs

Cycling trail maps are available to purchase from Go Ape, Grounds cafe and Cannock Chase Cycle Centre.
