- Cannock – mudfest or not too bad?
Got a day off tomorrow, and I’m desperate for a fast, brain out, xc blat through the trees. Local Peaks stuff is all fubarred (and I’ll be out in the main peaks on Sun), Sherwood Pines looks pretty messed up with fallen trees, so I was wondering about Cannock (not been there for years!)
According to Chasetrails faceache page, the Dog & Monkey are back open, but if it’s swampy as hell, I’d rather not end up trashing the place.

Been there every weekend for past couple months, first section was closed off (isnt it always !?) and the section after ‘between the trees’ (two sections after cardiac hill) was closed also. Will be back on Sunday so hope they are both open again by then.
As for mud the worst parts are the straight after ‘stoneybrook climb’, and the 2 sections after that, before and after the first boardwalk.Posted 4 years agokjcc25Member
Just remember it is half term, this week have come across grandma and granddaughter walking across the board walk at the Stegosaurus, not their fault it’s a big temptation and could do with additional sign warning people. Four mountain bikers, who should know better, blocking a section having a chat and unfortunately because it’s a “working forest” FC back in full swing thinning here there and everywhere which will result in more trees coming down the moment the wind gets up again.Posted 4 years agoJonEdwardsMember
Aye. Went, rode, amazed by the number of people pushing on FTD on anything that was slightly uphill (I hadn’t realised about 1/2 term). The Monkey was ace. A few laps of that was exactly what the Dr ordered. Almost dry, bar a cheeky shortcut I spotted on the Woodbank. Throughly recommended, although getting back home on a Friday afternoon was an utter PITA.Posted 4 years ago
