I'm not a big fan of technical single track or big table top jumps so this was not my piece of pie. I did however warm up to it. That and the loading dock drop off by Elevator #1.

I rode this trail back in 1996 when I was about 12. It was pretty sweet then, but now I am shamed.

This is a paved singletrack ride right in the heart of downtown Seattle. It is the REI customer product-testing trail which starts right next to the little espresso cart. The trail is approximately 65 yards long, and is quite an aerobic challenge if you put in 100 laps or so!

One added benefit of this trail is that if you don't have a mountain bike, the bikes are free to test-ride, and you get then right next to the trailhead inside the REI store!

Technical challenges include the possibility of colliding with pedestrians trying to get into and out of the store, and being knocked over by beginner mountain bikers who are also testing bikes on this trail.

There is some fine scenery in the form of fake rocks, an espresso cart, some kind of fake pond or waterfall or something, and a few trees and bushes along the trail. But the proximity of the espresso cart makes this a must-ride singletrack for the Seattle area!

Customer Service

Follow the directional signs, for the added technical challenge of dodging/colliding with REI customers who are testing new hiking boots or mountain bikes, ride it backwards.
