Sandwell Valley MTB trails are in Jubilee Woods near Swan Pool, Sandwell Valley, West Bromwich.
They opened in June 2013 and consist of a short mountain bike trail and a pump track.
The black sections really aren't that challenging, actually the whole thing feels fairly entry level. Not really a destination worth travelling distance to, but if you're local it's good for a workout and some practice or just a bit of fun. I don't really understand some parts of the course, there's tabletops and jumps that have almost no run up to get the required speed. Maybe I'm just getting old and slow.
A really fun trail with a couple of different lines. They have made good use of a small here. The final descent is awesome, with tables on the black line and some fast berms on the red. Fun to just session over and over
They have use the little hill well. I hope to see more small trail popping up soon I just hope the cost is less. Everyone have words with you local council as the is Funding to be had...
When you consider how little an area these guys had to build in, theyve done a cracking job.
Its great for when you have a few hours spare and want to keep you fitness levels up as well as small enough to keep sessioning sections in it.
We've now managed to add extra loops into the trails and can spend a good few hours up there.
Cannock Chase also being pretty near does have a lot more to offer, but living local when I have a few hours to kill, SV is were I go.
we though we would give this a blast as its only 18 mile away on the "cut" (canal) great for a quickie!
