Cycling in Sandwell Valley

Mountain bike trail

If you're looking for somewhere to go for a family bike ride, Sandwell Valley Country Park is a great place to visit. As well as a range of surfaced and unsurfaced tracks, there is a fantastic mountain bike trail and also a pump track.

Bike Hire & Shop

If you'd like to cycle around Sandwell Valley but don't have a bike, you can hire one within the country park. Alternatively, your bike may need repairing. The Bike Hire Shop is near to our High Ropes Course.

Visit the Valley Cycles website for further information.

The Miner's Trail

The Miner's Trail is a dedicated mountain bike trail which includes three kilometres of trails for all abilities, with some exciting and challenging technical features. It's located in Jubilee Woods next to Swan Pool car park just off Park Lane (B71 3SX).

The trail is free to use. For visitors with roof-mounted bikes, we recommend parking either at Sandwell Park Farm or at Forge Mill Farm.

Cycling routes

There are many places around the country park for family bike rides. Bike racks are located at our two visitor centres, Sandwell Park Farm and Forge Mill Farm, which are both great places to begin your visit.

Part of the Sustrans National Cycle Network (Route No.5) runs through Sandwell Valley Country Park providing an ideal route for families with young children to ride on surfaced tracks through pleasant surroundings.
