Coldwater Mountain Bike Trail

With 4,083 acres located between the cities of Oxford and Anniston, Alabama’s Forever Wild Land Trust protects Coldwater Mountain. Alabama State Lands, part of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, manages the park. There are many hiking and wildlife watching opportunities available here, but Coldwater Mountain has also become arguably the best mountain biking destination in Alabama.

Through a partnership between Alabama State Lands, the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA), the City of Anniston, and several local businesses, over 25 miles of novice to expert mountain biking trails exist currently on Coldwater Mountain. A total of 75 miles should be completed by 2017.

Coldwater 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. This is the place to visit for biking in Alabama!
