    Which end of brum do you live?

    Cannock Chase, shed loads of trails and waymarked "follow the dog".
    Wyre Forest is worth a blast.
    Closer in, Lickey Hills, Clent Hills and Sutton Park.
    Some do take a bit of exploring to get the best out of them though!

    It depends how far you want to go...

    Go for a rip, there are a few bridleways over there.

    We used to do a combi run between the 2 centers and get a fair run through the place, watch out for families at the weekends tho!

    Do you drive?
    Because theres loads of bridleways over clent you can link in, with a nice pub, and some interesting offroad/road bits to get a decent length.

    OS Explorer 219 for Clent and 220 for the Lickeys, you might want to check tho!
