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: Love these trails! I started at Cold Springs trail head and rode to Anniston trail head. The trail had just the right amount of challenge for my solid intermediate level. Some of the longer climbs tested my endurance, but the downhill flows were worth the effort. The Cold Springs parking had more room than the Anniston parking. Highly recommend!

Review: Rented a Trek Slash at Wigs in Anniston ( nice shop), and rode out to the trail, starting on the Anniston Trailhead. Awesome set of trails, truly exceptional for an almost all intermediate mountain. Lots of climbing, lots of well graded decents, some fun features. Drink from the stream and didn't get sick. If your in Phoenix or any where closer it is worth the trip.

Review: Sculpted banked corners and intensely fast flow tracks scattered between mossy rock gardens on what feels a bit like a monstrous mountain pump track.

Well marked and groomed but loose rocks on fast lines can be a hazard on busy days.

Review: Excellent trails. Bomb Dog is best downhill for 3 miles I've been on. Good hard climb for 3 miles to get there with switchbacks and rock garden at top. There is easy stuff too. They are new trails and well kept up. You've got to ride this trail!

Review: What a rush, this place definitely lived up to it's Epic status. I wish I lived closer so that I could ride coldwater more often. The trails were all very well marked and very well laid. I was always having fun, even when I was climbing. The multitude of rocks, roots, trees, jumps and everything else made for a very fun time.
