Trail Description
About this trail
The first 10 miles of what will hopefully become a 60 mile trail system are now in place and ready for riders. As of the writing of the description, trails currently consist of an easy 1 mile beginners loop and a 9 mile intermediate loop which encircles the mountain and takes full advantage of the terrain and elevation. Think of these current loops as flow trails with elevation. If you crossbred F.A.T.S. and Pisgah, this would be their baby. Trails flow clockwise.

Update 3/5/14: Coldwater Mountain now has 25 miles of trail. IMBA has arrived 3/2014 and plans to add 11 more miles over the next couple months bringing the trail to approximately 35 total miles.

Q: I am thinking of heading here in late October- are there any concerns in the forest regarding hunting season? -jsoflo

A: October is my favorite time of year to hit Coldwater! I don't believe hunting is allowed on the property but even if it is, there are so many mountain bikers who use the trails that hunters will be aware of you. Wearing blaze orange is always a good idea in fall just to be on the safe side.

Review: I know it's not the number one trail in Alabama, but this is one of the best trails I've ridden! The climbs are not hard but they are long and the climb is worth it though every pedal. Two words - Bomb Dog!

Review: This is a must ride trail. I only rode the cold water mountainside.and boom dog. But I'm coming back to ride the Anniston side. Trails are clean and well mark and after a hard rain the day before steel rode real good and was not wet.

Review: The trails them selves were excellent. Great flow on the down hills and enough challenges along the way on the climbs. Only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating would be the trail markers. We spent a lot of our time confused As to where we were. But with all that said, I will make the six hour drive again to go back.
