Chief Ladiga and Coldwater Mountain Trail Grants
The City of Anniston receives grants for local biking, hiking, and walking trails. Governor Robert Bentley has awarded $200,000 in grants for Chief Ladiga and Coldwater Mountain trail extensions. $100,000 has been awarded for a nearly three-quarter-mile paved extension to Chief Ladiga Trail. And the other $100,000 was awarded by Bentley for a six-mile extension to Coldwater Mountain’s existing 25-mile-long trail system. Wig’s Wheels Owner Patrick Wigley says he appreciates what the state is getting done in each trail system. He says the national and international attention our region is receiving is benefiting the area. ) The 10-foot-wide trail extension will run from U.S. Highway 21 at Baltzell Gate Road to Glade Road, and when combined with the Silver Comet Trail that stops just outside of Atlanta, Georgia, would bring the total length of the two adjoining paved trails to almost 100 miles.
