Where Can I Ride my Mountain Bike on a MTB Trail with my Dog?

You can do the same with your dog at the Cannock Chase mountain bike trails in the UK. The ‘Monkey Trail’ has included eight kilometres of new singletrack and some new look features added to existing routes. Cross-country, downhill, and family cycle trails (1-10 miles) are also there.

Birches Valley Forest Centre is already the starting point for the popular ‘Follow the Dog’ technical route. The seven-mile, single-track trail, which was created by Chase Trails as the West Midlands’ first dedicated Cross Country MTB trail, was also upgraded as part of the changes made in 2010.

Linked to the Follow the Dog technical route, the ‘Monkey Trail’, provides 24 kilometres of the West Midlands’ finest bike trail.

The ‘Monkey Trail’ features some short sharp climbs and long flowing decents, so you can expect some extremely tight twists and turns along the way. New features that are popular with mountain bikers will include climbing turns, berms, rooty drops and lots of narrow flowing singletrack.

Wide existing trails enable more people of all ages and abilities get active and develop a healthier lifestyle. There is an easy green route for families and beginners through to blue and red courses for cycling enthusiasts.
