This is a linear trail from Horseley Fields Junction Bridge in Wolverhampton, to Sneyd Junction in Bloxwich. It follows the course of the Wyrley and Essington Canal. Allow 2-2.5 hours to complete. The route itself is along a canal towpath. There are no steps or stiles, but there are a couple of bridges to navigate. There are also several radar key scheme gates. The route starts in Wolverhampton which has all the usual amenities and ends near to Bloxwich, a busy town. There are also several shops near to the first waypoint. This route is something of a "route of two halves". It starts in a highly developed area of Wolverhampton but ends between several nature reserves. There are several canal junctions along the route and points of historical interest. There is also lots of wildlife to see, particularly at the end of the walk. Kingsfishers have been spotted between waypoints 1 and 2.
