OK, although I'm aware that this trail is 37 miles long, I have only enjoyed the part closest to downtown, but on many occasions. I work close to the trail downtown, so it is easy for me to take a nature walk in the beginning or middle of the day. I like the fact that you can get exercise, see... More

We have ridden the whole trail on our bikes in chunks. This trail goes from Spokane to CD Idaho. It's a very scenic and challenging trail in spots. It offers many amazing views and fantastic picnic stops.

Really well laid out trail, with good signage and 'STOP' signs when crossing roads. Right through middle of the city, plus outside.

This is one of my favorite places for a hike in Spokane. You can start at the Kendall yards on the north side of the river. I usually start my hikes there. If you find central foods and turn right you will find more of the wild side of the Spokane river. Keep going past through the developments and the... More

As I live and work near different sections of the trail, I'm on it nearly every day. It is well planned, fairly well maintained (much of it is being patched and crack-sealed this year), and has some of the best urban river scenery anywhere. Downtown through Riverfront Park it is now a bit disjointed due to construction, which will continue... More

Great for a romantic stroll thru the town. The River is a spectacular feature running thru the town.

I started in Coeur d alene, and rice 25 miles to Riverside State Park and turned around. I know that the trail goes farther West, as well as to Higgins Point on Lake CDA. Very well maintained, and scenic as well!!!

Lots of trails and some bridges across the river and near some falls. Great walk for unwinding at the end of the day.

Many side trails throughout the 37 mile Centennial Trails, great for easy walking to moderate hiking. On the paved areas, its great for road bikes and there are many dirt trails for mountain bikes. Horses are allowed on several areas. Camp grounds are clean and well taken care of and the boat launches are easy access.

We rode our bikes on a windy Sunday afternoon and enjoyed the views, clear markings, changes in scenery and safe passage through the city. We'll be back.
