Looks great

Was only able to see a small portion due to rain. Would love to take a bike out on this trail. There were runners out despite the weather.

We visited downtown and really enjoyed walking the Centennial Trail. We took the "Gonzaga loop" from the shopping mall , waterfalls, park area, around the Gonzaga campus, and back. It was about a 2 mile loop, very pleasant. One thing to look out for is that there is just tremendous amount of construction going on in downtown Spokane and that... More

A beautiful trail along the river. It's paved, fairly level and easily accessible to foot traffic, joggers or bikes. It follows the river and has eclectic art pieces in areas as well as a famous carousel and other attractions. Definitely a not-to-be- missed area!!

This path goes on for miles-it affords wonderful views of the river, falls, bridges and parks. I was really impressed by all the educational signage along the trail, beautiful flowers, artwork and well marked areas for bicycles vs pedestrians. The trail is well used by locals and visitors alike and can make for a cooler and shadier way to make... More

A paved trail that connects Spokane Wa with Coeur D'Alane Id. Bathrooms and benchs are on the path and there are many places to enter the trail. See the color change in the foliage and hear the Canadian Geese in the Spokane River.

We rode our bikes from downtown to the Idaho border. It was 23 miles one-way. The trail starting downtown does go through streets for the first 10 miles or so. Once on the trail you follow along the river. Lots of bikers and walkers. very nice

I biked about 28 miles of this trail into Idaho and through downtown Spokane. It's unfortunate that Idaho and Washington act like each other don't exist regarding trail information. The first part into Idaho and last roughly 4 miles of Washington are along I-90 and not that exciting. Some of the Spokane Valley sections are poorly marked along roadway, some... More

We walked the bridges and part of the centennial trail with all the beautiful views of the falls and river. During the day there was a lot of activity and families. I would not recommend this at night or alone though because there are many areas not so nice characters can hang out.
