Sherbrook trail - whole day walking or cycling route

Tighten your laces or pump up your tyres and head off through the scenic, and wonderfully tranquil Sherbrook Valley.  The trail starts at the main Cannock Chase Forest car park where you can grab a coffee and cake at the café before you start.

There are two loops to choose from, the shorter Pepper Slade loop is seven and a half miles long, and the longer Abraham's Valley trail takes you to the Stepping Stones and Abraham's Valley is 12.5 miles.
