This lengthy trail along the Spokane River is a perfect path for walking, running and cycling. There are many exits/entrances to the trail which allows a person to customize their exercise length and preferred terrain. The path is wide enough to allow for bi-directional travel...More

Well paved trail great for nature views and people watching. West of downtown, osprey nests. Walk farther beyond Kendall Yards to see occasional deer and blue heron. Pausing to try and think of better intra-urban nature trails. OK, Anchorage. Missoula's pretty great. This one, though,...More

We certainly can't say we have walked all of this trail. However, over the years visiting Spokane we have walked sections of it. There are a few bits that are too urban for our taste, but they are easily avoided. Easy walking and friendly folks...More

Great trail with lots to see. Many sections were too steep for a manual wheelchair, but still a wonderful resource in Spokane

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.
