Went for midnight hike, quiet along the street until the falls, which are lit quite prettily. The roads are new and easily biked and walked! Clean as a whistle, which is very commendable.

I am so glad we chose a hotel that was on this trail. We stayed at Oxford Suites and this trail is right outside of it. The trail is a nice asset to this town and a great place to go outside and get some fresh air. Although the air here now is not fresh at all, it's so smoky... More

We were in Riverfront Park walking on a trail not knowing it was the Centennial Trail. This trail is about sixty miles long and goes into Idaho. Where we were walking the trail was wider than a one lane road and paved. It follows the Spokane river and it's a very scenic walk.

I have been on the centennial trail so many times by bike and walking. It has great views, is easy to walk or ride on, there are places along the way to have a picnic or go for a swim, wildlife, and I always feel safe on the trail. Come enjoy nature.

Loved traveling the trails by this fast flowing river. There is always something to see from the past and present. Well worth the wander and so close to downtown.

My wife and I walk the trail daily and it is a beautiful walk around the park. It takes you by Gonzaga University and the U-District which is becoming more beautiful every year. Do not miss this during your visit.

We have walked portions of this trail a number of times. You can walk, bike or run from Spokane to the Idaho border. It's nice to start walking at Riverfront Park then walk one side of the trail then cross over the river and return on the other side. Very peaceful and safe open trail.

We started from our hotel, Oxford Suites, in Spokane Valley. Incorrectly I assumed mile 9 meant we were 9 miles from downtown Spokane. The numbers go to zero at the Idaho State Line. We continued westbound. There were a decent amount of bathrooms before getting to Spokane. The signage is poor. Westbound we didn't know what to do after turning... More

This is a beautiful walk along the river. You can make it as short or as long as you want. We walked in a circle, crossing suspension bridges to get to the other side and then back to the hotel.
