Is anything better than shredding some amazing trails with good friends?
We set out to ride the newly-built Coldwater Mountain trails a few miles outside Anniston, AL. We heard great things, especially from local DH pro and trail builder, Ethan Quehl who was working with IMBA's Trail Solutions team on the more advanced trails.
A short two-hour drive from Atlanta, the trails offer a nice change of pace from our urban trail systems. Coldwater Mountain includes a number of All Mountain-style trails, and new flow trails similar to B-line at Whistler (without the epic elevation and super-long runs of course). There's also a two-mile stretch of awesome downhill that's rocky, has great sections of flow, smaller doubles that deliver a great ride for those who crave gravity.
