North of Birmingham, the forest is a popular destination for cyclists of all abilities. Recent additions are Perry’s Trail for intermediate riders and an innovative Pedal and Play area that helps younger cyclists develop their skills.
The forest also boasts miles of walking trails, a Go Ape centre for thrill seekers, running routes, the Superworm activity trail and Gruffalo sculptures that transform woodland walks into an exciting prospect for children.
There’s also Grounds Café for an all important re-fuel after all that fresh air. As well as being a forest playground for all ages, Cannock Chase is also a working forest, providing timber for the nation.
Ticket holders have exclusive access to the viewing area near the start/finish. A pass out system will be in place for ticket holders wishing to access the trail viewing areas as shown on the map.
Accessibility: At this venue there is a mix of hard-standing pathways, trackway, and grass. The trails outside of the ticketed spectator area may become muddy and wet in bad weather, which may not be suitable for wheelchair or mobility scooter users or those with limited mobility.
Accessible Golf Buggy: To help reduce distances across the site, an internal Accessible Golf Buggy Service will be running between the transport hub and ticketed entrance.
Opening Information: The Cannock Chase Forest venue opens 1.5 hours before the session start time. Please note there is no parking at or near the venue, except for limited blue badge parking, which must be pre-booked.
