Walking through the park at dusk, three guys fanned out in front of us across the trail. I could see a baseball sticking out below one of their jackets. I was carrying a Colt Anaconda .44m beneath my duster. I opened the duster to show...More

We certainly can't say we have walked all of this trail. However, over the years visiting Spokane we have walked sections of it. There are a few bits that are too urban for our taste, but they are easily avoided. Easy walking and friendly folks...More

The trail offers a very scenic and relaxing way to get some exercise. Walking along the river and other sights was very peaceful, it's a easy walk and an easy way to get around.

We recently discovered the beginning of the Centennial trail in 9 mile falls. All paved, it sits higher than the river but has magnificent views. We've been there twice in the past two days! It's quiet and fairly uncrowded.

this trail goes a really long way, but the piece close to downtown is probably most popular. It's so scenic and a great place to walk, run, bike, etc.

I love this trail. I run and walk on it every time I am in Spokane. We use it to walk between Downtown and the Gonzaga campus and to run with the dog. The dog also gives it high marks.

A very enjoyable walk along the river. The scenery is beautiful, Extra bonuses include a carousel, a kids playground with a HUGE Red Ryder Wagon that is really a slide, a cool fountain.

Love this trail....so long it is but you choose how far you want to go. Word of caution....be aware of the scooters...those LIME scooters you rent...people just zip along on those and many WAY too fast....just be careful. Love the sculptures along the city area.

Loved walking this trail. Well maintained and at least for the length we walked (mostly by the Falls, Power Plant and Convention Center) had nice views. Have to give the city credit for conceptualizing and implementing this system. Also, just a note - though in...More
