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.

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.

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.
