Dudley Trail 2020 - Sunday 3 May

in association with The Lee, Shaw Partnership

Dudley Trail is in its 40th year and is a series of challenging walks in and around Dudley borough.

Fancy a walking challenge?

Dudley Trail is a series of challenging walks in and around Dudley borough. The routes include canals, a disused railway, a geological nature reserve, country footpaths and some roads. They include gentle fun-filled gentle walks where you can discover some interested places and make new friends. The longer walks are for more seasoned walkers challenging their stamina and skill on different types of terrain.

Anyone can take part, including children (under 14s need to be accompanied by an adult) and dogs must be on leads.

All of the routes are waymarked and printed instructions are issued at the start.

There are six routes to choose from available to view or print online

Start times are staggered throughout the morning depending on length of route, see below.

The one-off Ruby Route will be advertised shortly.

All walkers must register on the day at Dudley Leisure Centre at the Dome on the car park. If you pay on the day rather than in advance fees will be more than the online cost. Please note the start time above for your chosen route.

Everyone who completes their chosen walk will receive a certificate.

Dudley Trail 2020 is supported by Action Heart, Stourbridge Ramblers Club and Jessup Brothers.
