Sandwiched halfway between the major metropolitan areas of Birmingham, Ala., and Atlanta, Ga., is the small town and big trail dreams of Anniston, Ala., and its 4,000-acre property, Coldwater Mountain.
More than 25 miles of trails have already been built under the direction of IMBA Trail Solutions, with up to 75 miles scheduled to be completed by 2017. To incorporate the best qualities of North America's finest trail systems, Trail Solutions is not only putting its own to work, but is inviting pro trail builders from all over the country to leave their creative signatures on the mountain. As a result, the Coldwater trails will eventually be accessible by a short ride from downtown Anniston, which itself can be reached by Amtrak train.
The mountain offers everything a rider could wish for: Explore red-dirt trails in a backcountry setting, shuttle the gravity runs and style out the optional technical lines, or enjoy scenic, entry-level trails that will stoke a novice rider's fire.
As of spring 2013, the city has contributed more than half a million dollars to help fund the trail system. In addition, Anniston's leaders are actively courting new business, planning a renovation of the Amtrack station, building paved bike paths and lobbying the Alabama legislature to allow the city opt out of the state's ban on Sunday alcohol sales. All for mountain bikers.
