We visited when it was cold and it was still a wonderful trail (and that's coming from a sun-lover)! The views are wonderful and the little town is so quaint. It was a fun spot for breakfast and a hike just outside of Spokane.

with 3 dogs I use the Centennial trail almost every day. It is well maintained and usually trash free and has limited ice during the winter. Serious bike riders in their multicolored stretchy clown costumes tend to be rather arrogant and typically fail to warn...More

This is a really long trail and all the routes I have had the pleasure of visiting were beautiful, clean and easy to walk or ride my bike. Most of time the trail is along side a river.

We love this trail. Paved, well marked, beautiful scenery, love walking through the college and the town. Our only negative was our encounter with the No See’ems. These tiny flying bugs were terrible. They were so thick at the park outside the city we had...More

This is a great walk or run through incredibly beautiful areas. MOST of it is dog-friendly, but not all. I say just do it.

Much of the Centenial Trail from Spokane to Coeur d’Alene is urban or too close to the highway to enjoy, but from CdA to Higgins Point there are great vistas of the lake and a statute of Higgins at the east end for a photo...More

My friends and I rode this trail from downtown northwests toward the Spokane River. Amazing scenery and the trail is wide enough for both people on foot or on bikes. Mostly flat it follows along the lake and river with lots of markers describing the...More

We loved starting a piece of this in Spokane, Washington and coming upon more of it here. What a lovely walk through the woods (as Bill Bryson would say) and a piece through the edge of the urban setting. Take time to explore this

We love to hike any part of this trail when we are in the area. This last visit we took the far end, beginning at Mile 19 and hiking "up in number" for almost 5 miles. We are always amazed at how clean it is,...More

I agree with JayRayBee's answer, also closer to town the Coeur d'Alene is lovely but much more expensive. In the Riverstone area there is also a Hampton Inn and it is closer to another biking path that is pretty nice as well... More

It might be too late to give you this info, but North Idaho College has what they call Outdoor Pursuits. They rent all kinds of outdoor equipment. I'm not sure if they do bikes, but I'm sure they'd know who to rent from. You... More
