Lovely trail that largely follows the Spokane River through piney forest. Great wayfinding, with reasonably spaced distances between water/restroom stops. Be aware that there are a couple of section that travel for a while along Upriver Road, which google maps marks as protected lane or trail but are in fact on the shoulder of the road.

We are so lucky here in Spokane to have the Cenntennial Trail. It's a lovely respite to take a stroll, run or bike. My dog loves it, too.

The entire trail is many miles, and I haven't ridden the entire thing, but the portion from RIverside Park in Spokane for about 10 miles out is excellent, with beautiful views along the river. Portions that go through the city of Spokane are not as nice, some of them are along fairly busy roadways and are very hilly. In the... More

This is a great trail right along side the River. Great for walking or jogging. I've ridden my bike on the trail. A nice time. You will enjoy this trail. Great for begginers.

AWESOME Trail! Paved and mostly without and vehicular traffic. As you ride towards the Idaho border, the West Valley Shopping Centre is immediately adjacent to the trail. Lots of other area trailheads as well. You will have a GREAT biking experience!

While staying at the Red Lion-Division St., I took the opportunity to walk the trail; first up to Gonzaga University, then the other direction to Riverfront Park.Many walkers and joggers.Most of the rail is shady (at least in August). Good quick way to get to downtown Spokane by foot.

Only walked a portion of this trail. Loved it. Spacious. Neat. Beautiful views. Just loved all the trees and plants and berry bushes along the route.

I really liked staying downtown and having this place to visit each morning. Was easy to lose track of time. They have a free wifi all over the place. Really made my trip.
