Great trail for beginners like me! Clean and fresh air. No dog poop.

3/11/18 Muddy starting up the left side and icy coming down the right.

Great hike! Went counter clockwise and glad we did since it was quite muddy on the way down (probable last mile or so). Great viewing points once you get to the top. Dogs are allowed and it was noticed a lot of owners do not pick up after them so just watch your step. Overall great hike and would like to come back in the summer.

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. ;-)

Fun to do the whole loop. Has some steep parts. We always bring lunch to eat on the rocks at the top and enjoy the view of the Palouse.

It's a good little trail. We saw eagles, hawks, ducks and geese. There is a log across the trail but it wasn't hard to cross.

The main trail was packed enough to not need snowshoes. We walked through some of the smaller trails as well, but snowshoes would have been nice to have on those. Just enough new snow to not be icy, but it will be soon. We only saw one other person this morning and had a great view from the top on a sunny day.

Watch out for ALL the homeless. Don't go alone. Don't go at night. How about just don't go.

Icy and muddy, but totally worth it

great spot, easy to find. if you go right now (jan.) you might want to bring microspikes. the trail is iced over completely.
will be back when we get fresh snow to go snowshoeing

WAY too crowded!

A very peaceful walk during the lovely fall.

Very nice trail on a lovely, pretty day!

Fun had by all, excepts for beans

snowy a little muddy and slippery, but beautiful!

Nice trail when not flooding season, relatively easy walking trail, beats a sidewalk in the city.

Beautiful day today!

Nice hike, fairly easy, the trail is a combo between walking along the river and a paved road. You have to walk on the road and then it turns into centennial trail which is paved. At least half of the trail is in paved road.

Parking is plentiful.

whenever I have visitors in town Nd we do a stop in Spokane we always seem to do this trail. Kind if fun leisurely walk

Very easy loop. Great for kids, lots of freedom for them to run. Busy yet still private. Love the different landscapes throughout loop.

Really beautiful hike with great views of Spokane. Definitely follow the trail map if it’s your first time because there are a few places where it’s not clear.

Visiting from CA, was a nice place to take a morning run.

Nice afternoon hike

Great little trail.

Beautiful scenery.... Nice trail for an out of shape guy.

Very easy and flat little hike. I did it clockwise which seemed good. After crossing the bridge the first half is through the forest, no spectacular views but good enough. Then when you turn east the views of the river are very nice. Took an hour total including plenty of sightseeing and lazing around.

Nice hike with the kids and dogs. Trails are not marked very well and there are several spots that you could get on the wrong trail.

One of Spokane's best sights. Lots of stairs/steep hills, but very worth it.

Different sections are steeper than others. I went here in late Nov at night, and saw a purple-ish meteor or star pass in the sky. Mushroom hunting ++ Distant Howling ++ Great Views++
