A wide variety of trails cross this surprisingly rural park in an area so close to the town and so accessible. The park is very large and contains many miles of tracks which can be combined according to your inclination at the time. Orienteering maps are available, but the best way to find the good trails is to plunge in and get lost a few times. There are some very technical bits and jump spots tend to be obvious. The park is crossed by a couple of very convenient roads closed to traffic which can be used to get between sections of wood. Best time to go is in winter and on a weekday to avoid crowds. For a burning session include a jaunt to Thorntons in Birmingham for lunch.

Summary:
Sutton park seams to have it all, as I use it at least once a week, I still feel that this park can throw alot at you..(depending on the trail).
I now use it with the family, My daughter is 2 years old, and use to cry when i went out on my bike, Now she comes with me and My Partner. A great all rounder, for the MBR in us, and the Family

Recommended Route:
Sutton park, Sutton Coldfield.

Reviewed by: Paul , from Birmingham

Summary:
Exelent selection of paths, tracks and real muddy trails, suttable for all as there is plenty of varity. Avoid going off into real tough stuff after lots of rain. I managed to find mud that was as deep as my bike!

Recommended Route:
None - there are too many. But I like to wind my way between each of the park gates. Maps can be bought near Town gate.
