The Centennial Trail stretches nearly 40 miles between Nine Mile Falls, Washington and the Washington/Idaho border. The paved path follows the Spokane River for most of that distance, and it is frequented by everyone from walkers to Lime scooter users. From the state line, the North Idaho Centennial Trail continues another 20-some miles all the way to Coeur d’Alene.

You can begin an approximately five-mile round trip through the heart of Spokane by parking at Mission Park near Gonzaga University’s campus and heading west toward downtown. The path will take you through the University District, past the Spokane Convention Center, along Riverfront Park, and to a great view of Spokane Falls from Huntington Park.

On the way back to your parking spot, you can do some shopping at nearby River Park Square, explore more of Riverfront Park, and return along the other side of the Spokane River.
