Needs better signage especially when approaching turns. Downtown is pure guesswork due to path closure. Do not miss Trail of the Coeur d'Alene, Hiawatha all the way to Avery, and Milwaukee on to St Marie's. Creamery in Harrison is great for refeuling. Great bike shop...More

The views you get along the trail and bridges here are wonderful and amazing. The river was fast flowing but it was still wonderful. I recommend if you are in the downtown area you must stop and go for a walk on this trail.

We parked in the free lot at Mission Park on East Mission Avenue and walked South on the Centennial Trail along the Spokane River. Most of the 40 or so parking spaces were filled when we arrived at 3PM on a fine Spring Saturday afternoon....More

We rented bikes and did about a total of 25 miles heading east. The terrain is easy. We stopped at Gonzaga University for a quick look about and a bite to eat. The trail follows the river and is a lovely ride.

I love the Malecon boardwalk in Puerto Vallarta but the Centennial Trail in Spokane gives that a run for it's money. The Centennial trail is gorgeous! It's wide enough for all the foot traffic, it's well maintained, follows alongside the Spokane river right to downtown...More

I tried navagating my way around Spokane from one side of the river to the other but found much construction with many chain link fences blocking access. It was difficult but has potential once the projects are finished. The rapids are spectacular, and this part...More

As a previous Spokane local, I frequented this trail as I went for run, took a walk, or biked to work downtown. It takes you along the river and through downtown Spokane. It's the best way to see the city.

For a ride of just a few miles, I think one of the prettiest starts from “The Islands Trailhead” (google it) near Plants Ferry Park. It goes across the river on a Trail bride and winds it’s way to the Valley Mall. Great... More
