Name of bike trail: Cannop Valley Loop
Difficulty: hard to extreme
Length: 12 mile loop

One of my favorite mountain bike rides in the Forest; heads up the west side of Cannop Valley and behind the Cycle Centre. Takes in 4 great downhills - sadly, for every downhill there's a climb, but every one is worth the effort!

Start: follow the gravel track opposite the Fountain Inn, heading away from the crossroads. Cross the main road and pick up the Family Trail as it passes behind the houses. After about a mile you'll reach a wooden signpost. Turn left here, past the stone works. Cross the road and follow the electricity poles all the way up hill. When you reach the sub-station, turn right. There's a small track in front of you, with a single post.

This trail is NOT way-marked. We strongly suggest you transfer this information to an OS map before setting off. Please ride your mountain bike responsibly and follow the Country Code.......and don't upset the boar! Click the tabs above for a trail map, latest weather conditions and photographs.
