The trail flows through downtown on the north side of the Spokane River. We planned to ride east up river on the trail but weather prevented that from happening. We stayed at the Davenport Grand which had rental bikes and helmets.

Nice easy walking/multi-use trail. Winds its way through the park where you can enjoy all the sites and the river.

So many spots to "enter" the trail system! Much of the trail follows the river . It is exciting to see the river change with each season!

The park and trail are a lovely place to run and/or walk. The fall colors along the river were absolutely amazing, but this trail is beautiful any time of year--from spring floods to icy winters. The dam and falls are beautiful, a good place to...More

My wife and I stopped and did a walk on the trail. It was peaceful, saw some different looking birds we were not used to seeing.

I lived in Spokane in the early 1990's and rarely took advantage of this trail, but rediscovered it upon a recent visit. Unfortunately, the weather during my visit was in the high 90's, so I couldn't walk along the trail as long as I would...More

You don't need to walk or cycle the entire 37 miles of the Centennial Trail. Just pick a spot to start and walk for a while. The section that runs through downtown Spokane provides an eclectic mix of environments: parks, river, commercial, residential, urban, suburban....More

Any visitor to Spokane should be sure to enjoy our beautiful river and multiple falls. They are spectacular any time of year and bordered by beautiful Riverfront Park.

Loved doing short bike rides along the trail close to downtown, and taking my mother for walks in her wheelchair. Signage as you get farther out is a little spotty and you give up dedicated paths for shared roadway in places.

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
