What’s Inside?

walk-through-videoThe Trailhead will be the hub of activity for year-round outdoor endurance-based activities in the Minneapolis area. The building will include:

Gathering Space and Party/Conference Room

The Trailhead will include a 3,200 square foot common space. Accommodating a few hundred people, the gathering space will feature windows that look out over the trails and stadium area. There will also be a 250 square foot party/conference room that can be reserved for events like meetings and birthday parties.

Bike and Ski Shop

A bike and ski shop will provide bike, ski and snowboard rentals and sales plus tuning services and other gear.


The eatery will be a place to meet friends for a drink or to get a healthy snack or meal. The eatery vendor will also provide catering for events at the Trailhead. We are currently seeking a visionary operator for the eatery. For more information see our request for proposals page.

Locker Rooms and Public Restrooms

Storage lockers and changing room facilities for virtual health club “members.”

Strength and Conditioning Room

You won’t see treadmills and ellipticals in this room! The 750 square foot exercise room will have garage doors opening to a covered outdoor area to be used for strength and conditioning and/or doors opening to an outside covered area that will be used for strength and conditioning and/or activities like yoga.
