Radar Time
      Located on Cannock Chase in the Midlands, Stile Cop is home to a small selection of excellent downhill trails with a vibrant local community. With a total height drop of just 65 metres the trails are limited to around a one minute run, but there’s a wide variety to keep riders busy. The trails are free to ride and open all year round.

      Stile Cop is also home to the Racers Guild downhill races - these are a great opportunity for both new and seasoned riders to give downhill racing a go. For upcoming dates and for more information, visit the Racers Guild Racing Facebook group.

      Watch out for trail closures due to maintenance or emergency issues. Full face helmets and suitable body armour are highly recommended. Always check the trails out on foot before hitting them at speed.

      Construction of the official trail network began in 2003 and Chase Trails looked after the hill from 2004 to 2015. In early 2016, the Racers Guild team took over and work with the Forestry Commission and Chase Trails to build and maintain the trails.
