The trail flows through downtown on the north side of the Spokane River. We planned to ride east up river on the trail but weather prevented that from happening. We stayed at the Davenport Grand which had rental bikes and helmets.

So many spots to "enter" the trail system! Much of the trail follows the river . It is exciting to see the river change with each season!

My wife and I stopped and did a walk on the trail. It was peaceful, saw some different looking birds we were not used to seeing.

Any visitor to Spokane should be sure to enjoy our beautiful river and multiple falls. They are spectacular any time of year and bordered by beautiful Riverfront Park.

Loved doing short bike rides along the trail close to downtown, and taking my mother for walks in her wheelchair. Signage as you get farther out is a little spotty and you give up dedicated paths for shared roadway in places.
