If you're visiting Spokane, this is a wonderful way to see the downtown area. You can walk from Gonzaga University down to the gondola that overlooks the Falls. You may skip the gondola and still get great views of the city. The walking/biking paths are wide, well lit, and can take you to some of Spokane's hidden treasures.

The downtown section of the trail is gorgeous. RIght alongside the river. The other neat aspect of this trail is that it stretched for miles in either direction. You canhop on and off it when and where you choose. Or take it all the way into Idaho if you want a major excursion.

We use the trail about onece a week spring through fall - usually park near Gonzaga and head into town for dinner or a drink - on our 5 mile route - burn a few calories and then replace them - but a beutiful view while were at it. Really appreciate having this available and the premium space that was... More

OK, although I'm aware that this trail is 37 miles long, I have only enjoyed the part closest to downtown, but on many occasions. I work close to the trail downtown, so it is easy for me to take a nature walk in the beginning or middle of the day. I like the fact that you can get exercise, see... More

We have ridden the whole trail on our bikes in chunks. This trail goes from Spokane to CD Idaho. It's a very scenic and challenging trail in spots. It offers many amazing views and fantastic picnic stops.

Really well laid out trail, with good signage and 'STOP' signs when crossing roads. Right through middle of the city, plus outside.

This is one of my favorite places for a hike in Spokane. You can start at the Kendall yards on the north side of the river. I usually start my hikes there. If you find central foods and turn right you will find more of the wild side of the Spokane river. Keep going past through the developments and the... More
