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.
