The Spokane River Centennial Trail is a Convert|61|mi|km|0 paved trail in Washington and Idaho for alternate transportation and recreational use. It extends from Sontag Park in Nine Mile Falls, Washington to the east shore of Lake Coeur d'Alene. It passes through the cities of Spokane, Washington, Spokane Valley, Washington, Liberty Lake, Washington, Post Falls, Idaho and Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The trail runs 37 miles in Washington and about 24 miles in Idaho. The two state segments join where the trail crosses the state line just west of a bridge crossing the Spokane River near Interstate 90.

History

Following the environmental rediscovery of the Spokane River after Expo '74, advocates proposed a mixed use pathway along the river. Citizens in Washington and Idaho expanded the idea by 1986 by joining forces and suggesting a much longer trail that could be completed in time to celebrate the respective state centennials of Washington (1989) and Idaho (1990).
