“Bomb Dog is very progressive and super fun for riders of all abilities. Getting air is up to you!”

Description
Bomb Dog is currently the longest section of singletrack in the trail network at Cold Water Mountain. It connects from Papa Bear in a clockwise direction to the backside of Baby Bear.

From the intersection with Papa Bear, Bomb Dog starts with a few miles of climbing and contouring. The grade is steady and rolling but never daunting and gives you a chance to enjoy hardwood forest, a surprisingly beautiful place.

Near the top of the climb, you'll notice some beautiful rock outcroppings that are scattered intermittently throughout the landscape.

As the climb tops out you will come across a new headstone on the left side of the trail. The memorial honors Floyd the Bomb dog, a beloved pet of an Anniston local.

From here get ready for one of the newest and best flow-style descent available anywhere. It's about two miles long and features plenty of rollers, camel and table-top jumps, and a handful of black diamond rated optional lines. This section of trail is very progressive and is super fun for riders of all abilities. Getting air is up to you!

After the big descent you'll keep the smile as you contour, climb and have another short descent. The final climb to finish the loop is nothing major and connects with the backside of Baby Bear, a nice and mellow finish.

The Bomb Dog Loop - Coldwater Mountain is also a great option, combining Mama Bear and Papa Bear with Bomb Dog to make the most of the descents.
