The good folks of Anniston, AL have been hard at work over the past few years building a mountain bike haven and by all accounts, they’ve been successful. With an average of one inch of snowfall a year and average low and high winter temperatures of 34 and 56 degrees respectively, the trails in Anniston are almost guaranteed to be ready-to-ride whenever you visit.

Coldwater Mountain is the crown jewel of Anniston singletrack and offers 20+ miles of expertly constructed singletrack that ranges from flowy to rocky and back to flowy again. There’s even a dedicated downhill run that’s shuttle-able. For those with an adventurous side looking to explore a bit more, head a little outside of town to Cheaha State Park (the highest point in Alabama) or even the Choccolocco Wildlife Management area.
