This trail is great for a short stroll or a long bike ride. It connects Gonzaga to downtown. Wonderful time for a family to enjoy some outdoor time together or to get together with friends for a walk, bike ride or run.

The Centennial Trail was right next to our hotel and provided an excellent opportunity for walking or jogging. You see a lot of families out for strolls. The giant Red Wagon is a favorite spot for photographs. There are several waterfalls with good observation platforms.

We love to walk along the river in Spokane. There are several places where the trail allows this. The trail also goes through downtown Spokane.

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!
