Finding somewhere for a quiet walk is easy in Sandwell Valley Country Park. Whether you are a keen rambler, or just want to go for a walk with the dog or family, with 660 acres to walk round, you can go for a quiet stroll in pleasant surroundings through woods, farmland and by pools and streams.

Many of our footpaths are surfaced, providing access for all, though many are left as natural tracks to provide a sense of a real countryside.

There is a trails map which shows the main footpaths through the Country Park and adjacent areas. Copies of the map are available from both Sandwell Park Farm and Forge Mill Farm or you can download a copy of the trails map.

If you enjoy walking in the countryside but don't like walking alone, try one of our three weekly health walks, starting from Sandwell Park Farm at 10.30am on Tuesday & Thursday and from RSPB Sandwell Valley at 10.30am on Friday.

These routes can also be walked at your own leisure and again further details are listed on the Forge Mill, Priory Woods and Sot's Hole leaflets.

Water safety

We have several ponds, pools and lakes across the country park. They're great for a visit but make sure you observe our rules on water safety.
