IMBA's Trail Solutions program has spent the past year working with the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association (SORBA) and the State of Alabama to design and permit a new destination-quality mountain bicycle trail system on Coldwater Mountain. Located adjacent to the community of Anniston, the trail system will have a staggering amount of singletrack in a variety of flavors and for a range of skill levels: rocky, technical trails; sweet, flowing ribbons of dirt; and a bike skills area for expanding one's riding prowess.
As importantly, the trail system will have a positive impact on the community. Not only will local childern and adults have easy access to fun, healthy recreation, but visiting cyclists will spend money on food, lodging, gas, and the inevitable bike parts that get destroyed on those fun rocky trails. The combined economic and social benefits are nicely described in a recent editorial by the Anniston Star, and Trail Solutions is proud to be a partner with the local community to create this unique and innovative riding experience.
