This is a circular walk set in Sandwell Valley. It takes you from the RSPB reserve on the site, past the northern side of Forge Mill lake, through Forge Mill Farm and its associated fields before returning to the RSPB reserve via the southern side of the lake. The walk offers views of the lake, access to Forge Mill Farm, where you can meet the animals, a stroll through a small wood and views of the River Tame. There are a lot of birds on the lake and a variety of animals at the farm. During the summer and autumn, there is sometimes a maize maze at the farm, but you are advised to check before travelling. The walk takes place on shallow gradients with well maintained footpaths for the most part. Some of the paths around the farm/through the woodland take place on grass, and may be muddy after wet weather. There are no stiles or flights of steps on the walk, but there are several gates. Toilets are available at the farm during opening hours.

The trail around the Forge Mill Lake is very good for walking or running. Unfortunately the Forge Mill Farm trail is closed.
