trails.

Follow the Dog

The Midlands first dedicated mountain bike trail. Follow the Dog is a red graded 7 mile intermediate mountain bike trail aimed at competent mountain bikers. Opened in 2005 the trail was completely designed and built by Chase Trails and more recently additional sections have been added including the all new Tackeroo descent which was built as part of the contractor works to the Monkey Trail and was opened in April 2010.

The Monkey Trail

Opened in April 2010 the Monkey Trail is an optional extension to Follow the Dog. Again itís a red graded trail but this time itís a far more technically challenging and demanding trail. It includes bigger climbs, more technical descents and optional black graded lines. The trail is intended for experienced and technically competent rider.

The Monkey Trail can be ridden by starting Follow the Dog to approximately half way and then turning off to ride a further 7 mile trail before returning to complete Follow the Dog. A mix of machine built trail and handbuilt trails created by our volunteers, the Monkey Trail provides a superbly engaging ride.

Both trails are free to ride and open all year round. Please observe and follow any sign posted diversions which are necessary from time to time for trail maintenance or other safety reasons.

Ample parking and visitor facilities are provided by the Forestry Commission at Birches Valley Visitors Centre and cycle hire and support is also available at the site courtesy of Swinnerton Cycles Forest Centre.

Groups with younger children or novice riders are advised not to ride the trails but to choose one of the green way marked Leisure Trails.
see you, there for a great days ride if it like the Last time we were up there

Good News - Monkey Trail Update
We've had to keep this under wraps for a while Ė thereís been a lot of work behind the scenes getting quotations, approvals and the like sorted but finally we can go live with this press release from the Forestry Commission:



ďA MTB Trail building contractor has been appointed to repair recently damaged trails. Harvesting operations took place on the Monkey Trail in the Deercote valley, which are part of the long-term forest management plan.

Every effort is taken to minimise damage, but unfortunately around 15% of the trail is damaged, where tree harvesting machinery crosses the trail creating ruts. These thinning operations are essential to give the trees more room to grow, allow wildlife to flourish and timber sales help fund the trail.

The contractor will carry out the repairs, but also revamp the whole trail section. These works are planned to start at the beginning of April 2013. Please obey all safety signage and follow diversion. Thanks.Ē


Good news all round - the damaged trails get repaired while we work on other sections
i will just Keep an eye on it and we see when we get up there
