“Where the buffalo roam!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

This was the site of a zoo at one time. The buffalo actually roamed there!! Now, a perfectly idyllic trail goes from downtown Spokane, Washington to Coeur 'd Alene, Idaho. This trail follows the Lewis & Clark Trail. It's a walking history!

“Try to find this in any city”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

How long do you want to walk or ride a bike? Where to start and stop is the only question. Many terrains and sites, paved and spotless taking you through quiet spots, bustling downtown and sites to stop and eat a sack lunch. DO IT!

“fun”

This is a fun trail that covers a lot of the Spokane area. You can walk, run, bike, skate and it accesses many fine attractions.

“Walk, bike, run, rollerblade all the way to Idaho”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

This paved trail passes through Riverfront Park in downtown Spokane west and northwest along the Spokane River to Riverside State Park. It goes east along the river past Gonzaga University and through Spokane Valley until it crosses the state line into Idaho, then to Post Falls and Coeur d'Alene, where it continues along the Lake. (If you are a long distance bicyclist you can connect from this trail to others in north Idaho and also to trails that will take you to Turnbull Wildlife Reserve Southwest of Spokane near Cheney, WA, and even through central Washington to the Tri-cities of Pasco, Kennewick and Richland.)

“Really refreshing”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Nice trail, close to the river with lots of wildflowers. We hiked it around Spokane Valley, and at that point it's very quiet (as it is located off the road)
