Hello, was wandering if anyone has been on the trails at Cannock chase in the last week or so. I'm planning on going there tomorrow and just wanted to know what the conditions are like.

Is it covered in thick mud, or just a bit muddy on the surface? I don't mind getting dirty, but my local route was pretty much unrideable last weekend as the mud was so thick my back wheel couldn't get any traction on any sort of uphill bit.

TIA

    Pretty dry on most of the dog and monkey. Odd claggy bits but nothing major unlike your last trip. Can't speak for off piste stuff though.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Cheers, should be a good day then.

    Did stile cop and a bit of the monkey Friday, was bone dry, did the whole follow the dog loop with my son yesterday, bone dry.

    Its always dry unless its literally pissed down the night before.
  • It was indeed bone dry, had a great day in the glorious sunshine. Really enjoyed doing lower cliff for the first time, even if I did nearly lose it a couple of times (in fact I did it twice as I got lost and couldn't find lung buster so did the trails in the wrong order the first time round).
