McClellan Bike Trails

460 BG DH Stem Road, Anniston, AL at the former Fort McClellan

The McClellan Bike Trails Phase I was the first National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) specific built trail in the State of Alabama. The inaugural Melee at McClellan race took place in March of 2020 with 2000 attendees and 600 of those racers. Phase II of the trails has added another 5 miles for a total of 10 miles of trails to explore.

Phase I of the trails are ideal for someone that is new to mountain bike riding with smooth climbs and fast smooth descents while Phase II provides the next level full of fast descents, rugged terrain and climbs to beautiful views. The McClellan Mountain Bike Trails provided great options to meet the experience each rider seeks.

“The new addition to an already fast and fun trail system is really nice. It brings some more purposed fast flow down the mountain as well as big views of the valley. Sloan’s Furnace is a blast; it’s worth riding back up for multiple trips down, said Bart Davidson, Programs & Race Director of NICA Alabama. As for the NICA race, we might be able to incorporate some of it, but that’s a secret at this point. This is a trail system well worth the trip.”
