“A gravel trail at REI's flagship store that allows riders to perform a quick bike test onsite.”
— Eric Ashley
This trail is open to REI customers wishing to test-ride bikes. Inquire at the Cycling Shop for more information during business hours and to sign a Bicycle Test Ride Agreement form.
This short gravel track starts from the southeast corner of the store as a gradual descent to the a split in the trail. Keep right to travel along the ornamental waterfall and then head under an overhead walkway. There are a few water bars here to rumble across and feel the suspension working.
On the other side be, prepared to yield as the trail crosses over a pedestrian-only trail. Keep straight and loop around a paved corner and start a short climb back up to the split you encountered earlier. From there, you can circle around by the waterfall again, or climb back up to the start.
