Route Outline

Cannock Chase offers many opportunities for walking. However this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty does suffer from a number of unsightly conifer plantations and this walk explores an area where they have very little visual impact. A detailed map is a useful accessory as there are many paths criss-crossing the Chase. However provided you have a good sense of direction you should not get lost. If the Chase is quiet you have a good chance of seeing deer especially in the final mile or so back to the start.
