Comer Woods Explorer trail

Enjoy a bike ride at a National Trust place

The route offers a 5 km safe off-road path through Dudmaston's stunning woodland. The trail will be suitable for families to explore, but it's also perfect for cyclists, walkers, runners and adapted wheelchair users to enjoy.

We're passionate about getting people outdoors and closer to nature. Our aim is to make access to the parkland as easy as possible and make people feel comfortable about heading off into the countryside.

Take in the woodland at your own pace

In partnership with Sport England, Dudmaston is part of a national project to provide multi-use trails, giving you the opportunity to explore more of the estate than ever before.

Access for all

The trail will be multi-use, intended for walkers, runners, cyclists and adapted wheelchair users. The route will be aimed at people who aren’t regularly taking part in activity, not for confident cyclists or mountain bikers.

For families

As more families visit Dudmaston, it’s important we can provide a safe place for them to enjoy the wider estate too. A place that they can be active together, safe in the knowledge that they’re in a traffic free environment.

The circular trail has been designed with materials that will mean it can be used all year round, by a wide variety of users.The surfaces are not designed for racing road bikes, but for families looking for an easy, safe route on which they can spend time outdoors together.

What happens next?

As the project moves forward, keep up to date with our progress.
