Enjoy the great outdoors at Cannock Chase Forest

Rugeley , Staffordshire

Cannock Chase is the UK’s smallest mainland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Here you can ride, hike, climb or just wander at your own pace.

Your family adventure starts here. Activities in Cannock Chase Forest include the fascinating sculpture trail, adventure play area and a forest Segway experience.

Feeling brave? The Go Ape Tree Top Adventure offers you a high-ropes forest activity course. Set 40 feet above the ground, you will have to tackle high wires; crossings and wind-in-your-face zip wires in order to complete this thrilling challenge.

Miles of exhilarating mountain bike trails suit all ages and abilities. And 17 waymarked paths (including the 'Follow the Dog' trail and the 'Monkey Trail') all start from Birches Valley Forest Centre. Plentiful parking is available, and there are cycle hire facilities and a family-friendly cafe on site.

You can even spend the night under the trees with a range of campsites to pitch your tent and practice your survival skills.
