The sound of the rushing river along with the beauty of it is just amazing. The path is paved and very clean.

Depending on where you access the trail, the Centennial Trail has many different faces for the casual explorer. It follows the Spokane River, so you can explore Riverside State Park, Riverfront Park, Gonzaga University, Kendall Yards,Mirabeau Park, or any location along the way. Or just take a bike and go all the way to Coeur d'Alene. No matter where you... More

Beautiful views and relaxing resting spots are constant on this paved trail along the Spokane river. Peddle over 30 miles from end to end or find a spot in the middle and go either way. Post Falls Idaho to Argonne street in Spokane is one continuous ride. Rapids, rocks and bridges keep the scenery constantly changing.

you can do country, forest or city on this trail. Walk, bike, run, skate, stroller are all options. You do have to cross a few big streets but there are light controlled. Connects parks, wildlife, food and the river is always by your side. Great way to enjoy Spokane

We spent an extremely enjoyable winter afternoon walking along the centennial trail looking for birds (hoping to see eagles, but happy to find numerous species of waterfowl). Super pleasant and well maintained (less ice on the trail than on the streets, I would wager).

Whether you want to ride your bike to Idaho or just take a walk through downtown to Kendall Yards, this trail shows the beauty of the Spokane River and the falls. If you are staying in Spokane downtown it gives you are great place to walk and get some fresh air.

If you're visiting Spokane, this is a wonderful way to see the downtown area. You can walk from Gonzaga University down to the gondola that overlooks the Falls. You may skip the gondola and still get great views of the city. The walking/biking paths are wide, well lit, and can take you to some of Spokane's hidden treasures.

The downtown section of the trail is gorgeous. RIght alongside the river. The other neat aspect of this trail is that it stretched for miles in either direction. You canhop on and off it when and where you choose. Or take it all the way into Idaho if you want a major excursion.
