Coldwater Mountain is a 4000 acre tract of land owned by the State of Alabama’s Forever Wild organization and managed by the State Lands Division of the state’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Forever Wild was created in 1992 by a statewide vote that garnered 83% “yes votes” from Alabamians and has been very successful in the years since. It is a program dedicated to preserving Alabama’s most beautiful land, while expanding the recreational opportunities available to the public. The Coldwater tract was purchased by Forever Wild in the late 90's and is presently being developed into a world class destination trail system for mountain bikers, trail runners, and hikers
