Lovely trail

Spokane has done a wonderful job of making the downtown a wonderful walk. We loved walking along and seeing all the walks and bikes.

Have walked this trail many times. All around Riverfront out past Gonzaga university, through the heart of Spokane. Absolutely a stunning trail.

This is such a fantastic city trail. You can get from Coeur d' Alene all the way beyond downtown Spokane. It is great for cycling - the trail is in good condition and kept clean. In many places, there is easy access to the river, or to beautiful rocks to sit on or benches with overlooks.

We stayed at Oxford Suites, 115 West North because you are right by the Centennial Trail which is right by the Spokane River. However, you can also stay at the Holiday Inn Express which is on a hill right beside Oxford Suites. It is a beautiful building,too. Red Lion is also a hotel in same place. If you take the... More

I love recreation trails and this a world-class one. This beautiful paved trail along the Spokane river and its falls runs lots of miles in both directions from downtown into the suburbs and rural areas of eastern Washington. The Centennial trail will make anyone from a casual walker to a serious cyclist happy. Starting well west of Spokane (Boise on... More

A walk along the centennial trail in Spokane was especially nice in March 2017, when the very high water levels made for a really rushing river. So fun to watch, almost mesmerizing.

You can actually take the trail from west of downtown all the way to Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. The walk along Riverfront Park is great. Good for bicycling if you want to explore more. If you are a hardcore biker, plan a day to ride the trail out east. Get a map, as it crosses over and you can lose... More

Good way to walk off dinner and watch the river which right now is really roaring. Only bummer was a large number of homeless.

Spokane River + Centennial Trail = LOTS OF FUN! It expands into two states, features spectacular scenery and an infinite number of awesome photo ops.
