Good Points
This is one of the best trail riding territories there is but you certainly need to have a local guide to find it all! Lots of technical stuff, lots of interesting climbs and the downhill sections are incredible. Single track with lots of rooty, rocky and natural hazards of all sorts with plenty of fast, undulating and exhilarating downs!!!!
Bad Points
You really have to know where you are going to make the most of it but from a local’s perspective, we’re all glad that the masses go along to Cannock so we can keep these fabulous trails to ourselves!

Good Points
had a few "iffy" hold on to your ants sections but other than that very tame and not meant for the enthusiast, more of a family trail and the odd off piste, maybe a local could show more buy sadly this wasn't for me, nice stream running via the middle eeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrr the pub opposite?? FOD has a lot more to offer, a few years of developing are required here!
Bad Points
MUD, MUD, MUD and er MUD, lol, you have to be prepared to get down and dirty here, not very good sign posts for trails and a bit mis-mashed, not for me I am afraid!! there are a few good bits and perhaps in the summer it would be ok, but in the middle of Sept we are hardly in winter, there are a few surprises but don't be expecting Cannock Chase or the FOD here :-(
