This trail has a little bit of everything, river views, open meadow, forest trees, wildlife, wildflowers, single track and a little jaunt on the paved Centennial Trail. After parking at the Riverside State Park Military Cemetery parking lot, head left on the Centennial Trail to the bottom of the paved hill. Here you will take a right onto Trail 100 which runs along the ridge of the Spokane River. Follow the ridge above the river until you come to the far end of the Waste Water Treatment plant across the river. From there, you head inland on a short connector trail to connect to Trail 42. Along the route is an Equestrian camping area. After which, you will follow a mostly paved/gravel roadway back to the Centennial Trail for an easy trip back to the parking lot.

Other than having to see the Waste Treatment Plant, this is a beautiful hike. The single track river portion was dry, but there is still plenty of wet snow on the inland portion. Bring your waterproof boots. ;-)
