Friends of the Centennial Trail assist in the maintenance and development of the Spokane River Centennial Trail and its adjacent parklands through advocacy and funding for its completion, management and restoration; 40 miles long, the Centennial Trail begins at the Washington/Idaho state line and ends at Lake Spokane in Nine Mile Falls, Washington. Our one-of-a-kind Trail has its metropolitan center section in downtown Spokane in Riverfront Park, and branches out to more rural east and west endpoints. The Trail’s path generally follows the contours of the Spokane River, allowing access for many types of outdoor non-motorized recreational activities.
The name “Centennial” refers to the Trail’s initial construction period, which occurred soon after the Washington State Centennial. Most sections of the Trail were completed between 1989 and 1991. From end to end, all 40 miles are completely paved. Thirty seven miles are safe, separated Class 1 Trail. The Spokane River Centennial Trail connects with the North Idaho Centennial Trail. Together, our trails span over 60 miles and connect the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene communities.
