Cannock Chase Forest is best known for playing a key role during World War I because as it was the largest unenclosed area in the West Midlands, it was an ideal location for 2 large military training camps. It is also a popular Go Ape location. We think that the forest has much more to offer than just training camps and Go Ape, which is why we wanted to publish an article about it. We'll be looking at what to do at the forest and what you need to know before visiting, let's get into it:
What are the popular trails at the forest?
Built in 2021, this trail has already become a favourite with cycling enthusiasts. At just under 3 miles in length it is by no means difficult, but it's enjoyable because of how quickly it can be completed and the variety of surfaces you'll come up against, including some muddy patches. There is also one slightly longer climb to tackle which might challenge cyclists who haven't done much mountain biking.
