*****   Add a review
#2 of 99 mountain bike trails in Alabama
#77 in the world

18 mile loop that includes singletrack, access road, old hiking trails, special sections (such as the ROCK GARDEN, and BLOOD ROCK). Kept in very good condition by the BUMP club. For extra information you can call Crestline Cycle in Birmingham and someone their could probably help you out. The USA MTB team trained here a month before the Olympics which says something about the quality of the trails.

Rider questions

Q: I am planning a trip through the South later this year. If I could only ride one, which trail system should I ride and why -- Oak Mountain or Coldwater Mountain?
A: Coldwater mountain would be more long climbs if you want to ride from the top down. Oak mountain has varied terrain with other riding areas within an hours drive. Both are fun. I would guess oak mountain has more riders on any given day but I personally haven't had any issues with traffic on the trails. Birmingham also offers more post biking activities.

Q: Which trail would you guys suggest for beginners? My husband and I are looking to spend the day at Oak Mountain this weekend. Take a lunch, the eno hammocks, and our bikes for a day out. Suggestions?
A: Answering my own question in hopes that it will help others in the future. We found (through this awesome site!) our LBS (Cahaba Cycles) and they were having a beginner mountain bike ride. We joined them and had an absolutely wonderful while learning so much! We did the Lake trail to the end and back. It was a nice, fun trail with enough ups and downs to keep us noobs on our toes while still having a blast. The views of the lake were stunning and the trails clearly marked.
