From any direction, follow the small brown directional tourist signs.

  • From the M6 or Cannock: Follow the A460 towards Rugeley. The brown signs with the deer logo direct along the A460 through Hednesford to a left turn onto Station Road by a Chase Car Sales. Immediately you will go over the railway bridge to a set of traffic lights. Turn right onto Brindley Heath Road. After two miles you will reach a crossroads, turn right onto Birches Valley. In two miles you will reach Birches Valley Visitor Centre.
  • From Rugeley: From Globe Island in Rugeley town centre, take Western Springs Road towards Stafford for 400 yards and turn left at the traffic lights, as directed by the brown sign onto Hagley Road. Follow this road, which becomes Penkridge Bank as the houses of Rugeley gives way to the lush greenery of Cannock Chase.

You should wear something that you don’t mind getting grubby. Dress for the weather so bring along a mac if it’s raining!

You need to make sure you have the correct footwear with closed toe and heel (with flat soles), no sandals or slip-off shoes.

You can participate in the Treetop Challenge at Go Ape if you're: 

  • Minimum age: 10 years old
  • Minimum height: 1.4m
  • Maximum weight: 130kg

Please note: Adults must supervise children between the ages of 10-15.

  • Under 13: One participating adult can supervise four children aged 12 and under.
  • 13-15 Years Old: One adult can supervise eight children aged 13-15 years while on the course or on the ground. 

Go Ape is an excellent wet weather activity! The course remains open in all weathers, except when it is icy, stormy, in high winds or during lightning. Rain makes the course muddier than usual – which all adds to the fun! Don’t forget to dress for the weather.

Sometimes, unfortunately, course may need to be closed for reasons beyond Go Ape's control, if this happens you will be given a full refund.
