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

Too many homeless and suspicious people. It's not all bad, but at certain parts, watch your back. And don't go after sunset....

This is a wonderful option to exercise while seeing Spokane, either by bike or foot. It generally follows the Spokane River. Once you get on it, the trail is easy to follow in the downtown area, but at the edges of town on both sides...More
