Building Trail at Coldwater Mountain
Things are coming along at Coldwater Mountain, site of one of Trail Solutions' (IMBA's professional trailbuilding and consulting arm) largest new trail systems to date. There are so many moving parts in this project, but one thing is certain: the trail is going to be some of the best around, because it's been designed and built by some of the best around. This is a huge project, to be completed over phases. When it's all done, there will be all types of trails for beginners to expert riders, rocky slopes and flow lines, features- and gravity-based riding, and everything in between.
Both Trail Care Crews are visiting Anniston to work with Trail Solutions. It's all hands on deck. We are all constantly designing and flagging trail, clearing corridor, machine cutting new trail, building berms and other trail features, rock armoring, hand-finishing trail, updating our maps and GPS lines, you name it.
If you are in Northern Alabama or Georgia, and would like to help out during volunteer days, think about joining our next work party, this coming Saturday.
Here are a few pictures of our progress.
