- Cannock Chase
Waymarked trail info here;
Wait for lots of people to post totally contradictory views of what the trails are like.
The Chase is 26 square miles of forest with many non-marked trails to explore if you’re up for a navigational challenge. With the Monkey Trail & Follow the Dog combined you have around 15 miles of waymarked trails to ride. Grading is modest and straightforward for a competent rider with a few harder options available on the Monkey Trail.
The Chase is very wet at the moment (as per the rest of the country) but who knows what it’ll be like come the end of the month but then that’s just what comes of riding bikes off road during the winter.Posted 4 years agowarns74Member
Been up to ride Cannock a few times now with mates and have always stayed here:
Trails are only a short ride from the door, Glenn and Tina are really friendly, great food, they will store bikes and have a hose pipe! Plus pub down the road! Definitely recommended.Posted 4 years agodmortsSubscriber
Better than the new Swinley trails but not as good as the old Swinley trails.
I’ll expand on this, used to ride Cannock a lot then moved down south, about 2 miles from Swinley so rode there mostly. The old mix of trails at Swinley was great, make up routes, ride with some else who’d show you new bits, pretty quiet and trails weren’t ‘santised’. New Swinley is busy, trails are as hard as pavement and as smooth as a BMX track, with most technical features removed. Cannock probably falls between the two as it’s less santised than Swinley…. but not ridden at Cannock in years so that may have changed. Probably a bit more elevation to play with at Cannock tooPosted 4 years ago
