Getting There

This is a circular trail that starts at Leasowes Park in Halesowen and travels via public rights of way around Lapal, before returning to the start. Some sections of the route follow the course of the now disused section of the Dudley #2 Canal, while others cross fields and a couple of roads. The walk offers views of Leasowes Park, a short section of woodland and quiet country lanes and footpaths. There are quite a few stiles on the walk and a few flights of steps. Most of the gradients are shallow. There are also two crossings over a busy dual carriageway so take particular care at these points. A short section of the path follows the route of the Monarch's Way. There are no facilities on the walk, though there is a pub between the second and third waypoints.

By car: Leasowes Park is located off the A458, Mucklow Hill. The park is close to J3 of the M5 and is marked with brown tourism signs. Approximate post code: B62 8DH By bus: several buses stop in nearby Halesowen.

Another lovely walk fairly close to home, seeing and learning so much about this area. A well thought out and planned walk. Crossing the dual carriageway can be dicey.

I have lived in this area all my life but never walked in this part. The walk is lovely and the directions so easy to follow - very impressed!
