North Idaho Centennial Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The North Idaho Centennial Trail is quite a gem, considering it runs for 23 miles in Idaho and 37 miles in Washington, making for a potential 60-mile one-way journey. The trail knits together a series of parks, waterways, and points of interest along the way. The only downside is that you’ve got to endure a less scenic windblown section of pathway along the freeway between Lake Coeur d’Alene and Post Falls.

Things get decidedly more scenic when the trail runs alongside either Lake Coeur d’Alene or the Spokane River. Be aware that there are a few places in downtown Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls, and Spokane where the pathway ends temporarily and riders have to follow bike lanes in traffic. While this description is one approach to riding the trail, consider simply tapping into the Centennial Trail where it is most convenient for you and riding as far as you please."

"A highlight of this trail is that it runs primarily along the Spokane River and Lake Coeur d’Alene. Trail users journey near I-90, pass through the conifers of northern Idaho, and go through the towns of Post Falls and Coeur d’Alene, ultimately finishing along the scenic Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive."
