Chase Trails

Major Road Closures on Sunday 9 June

Please note that due to the IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire triathlon, there will be major road closures in and around Cannock Chase & Staffordshire. Please plan your journey before visiting as your route will almost certainly be affected. More information can be found in the sidebar to the left (on a computer) or by tapping the menu button at the top of the page (on the mobile site).

Chase Trails is a local volunteer group set up over 15 years ago in partnership with the Forestry Commission to build and maintain the mountain bike trails on Cannock Chase, in Staffordshire, England.

Cannock Chase is home to the award winning and highly popular Follow the Dog and Monkey Trail mountain bike trails, as well as Stile Cop’s downhill trails. A combination of hand built and contractor built trails, it has taken well over 34,000 man hours from volunteers to build the trails – that’s almost 4 solid years of work, with no sleep!

Without your help, the mountain bike trails simply cannot exist. Come along and help – we work on new and existing trails every Sunday at 10:30am, meeting outside Cannock Chase Cycle Centre at Birches Valley.

All volunteers get a free day parking pass – come and help out in the morning, and ride in the afternoon for free!
