I walked along this pedestrian-friendly trail every morning on my commute to work at Gonzaga University, and borrowed a hotel bike for a longer jaunt part way to Idaho. The trail varies in surface and in being separate from traffic or along side traffic. In places, especially downtown Spokane, it's not clearly marked, but if the spirit of adventure calls,... More

Wish my city had such a trail in town. If you like to walk, jog, or bicycle, this is the trail for you. The trail winds along scenic natural areas. I stayed about half a mile away and visited each night. Safe, clean, fun. You have to go!

The Centennial Trail in the Spokane, Washington area continues to see improvements and increased use. This trail is a wonderful asset for Spokane. Anyone visiting the area should find time to enjoy the trail, which provides excellent views of the river. We have finally traveled the entire length of the trail from the Idaho border to Nine Mile Falls and... More

I walked the trail in two directions from the Oxford in Suites. I was staying there on business and needed an easy walk. It is a great walk. Do it if you can.

What other city has a waterfall in the middle of it. How cool is that? Clean, safe area. Easy to walk to from hotel.

I feel so fortunate to live in this city, one of the reasons being because it is where the Centennial Trail is located. It cuts through downtown Spokane and extends to the Idaho state line, and winds along some of the most beautiful natural areas on the way. It's a must-visit for joggers and cyclists.

Some delightful views can be found, especially on the new spur to the west of town. But gosh, I kept getting lost, no matter where I went. Terrible signage for which there is no excuse. There are some lovely spots, to be sure. And I'm glad I went riding, but I was really sorely disappointed by what could be a... More

I bike the trail several times per week. The view of the river is wonderful. The trail is well maintained. You meet lots of nice people on it. Watch out for the kamikaze bunnies, though. They like to play chicken with you and if you are riding fast, you might hit a bunnyator.

We biked only a small portion in Spokane. The newest addition down by the lower Spokane falls is great. It can be difficult ot navigate around river front park. A great trail. Washington and Idaho should be proud of this well maintained trail that is easy to use for bikers of all ages.

We haven't been on the trail for 20 plus years. We were so happy to have a chance, though limited, to be back on the trail. Looking forward to many more miles.
