Centennial Trail's new West Central stretch

Posted By and on Wed, Aug 6, 2014 at 4:00 PM

The Centennial Trail has undergone much change to its west-of-downtown section in the last year, with new sections paved and new areas to sit down and enjoy the Spokane River views.

A newly-paved, .75-mile section opened to the public in recent weeks just past the trail's Kendall Yards stretch, along Summit Boulevard between the street's intersections with Bridge and Boone avenues. This particular section of the bluff overlooking the Spokane River and Riverside Memorial Park was previously only accessible along the street. Now, the trail dips down from the street’s shoulder, but is fenced in along the riverbank's drop-off, and features a scenic overlook at mile 25.

Closer to downtown, improvements to the Veteran’s Court along the trail near where it passes beneath the Monroe Street Bridge continue to keep a short section closed during weekdays from 7 am-3:30 pm. Just west of that, permanent chairs and picnic tables were recently installed, offering picturesque views of the bridge and the Falls.
