Welcome to 37 miles of paved riverfront trail in a region that receives a meager 11 inches of rain per year. The sun shines on the Spokane River, rapids rush downriver, and bridges criss-cross the water. The Centennial Trail has three different personalities: the bustling and beautiful downtown Riverfront Park; the calm and gentle terrain to the east; and the hilly section high above the river, to the west. Both the eastern and western routes have sections on roadside shoulders. This is hot, desert country. Much of the trail is without services other than trail-head rest rooms, and water. Pack a snack and bring a water bottle to refill along the way. Benches and picnic tables offer rest stops beside the river. Surface: Asphalt, with some sections on roadside shoulders. Though horses are allowed on the side of the trail its entire length, a soft trail parallels the trail from the state line to Barker Road. Location: Nine Mile Dam to the Idaho border, Spokane County.

Start from the East, which connects to the N ID Centennial Trail which is not listed here. The NICT goes all the way to the East end of CDA. This SRC Trail goes from about 20 miles before you leave the trail and share the road, Thru Downtown you have your own trail, but then it ends you fight traffic. Riding along the river is great, quiet, just a few rises. Lots of benches to watch the river, kayakers etc. http://tinyurl.com/lhga9g http://tinyurl.com/me5juv Enjoy both paved bike trails, Ron
