The Spokane Valley is the ideal jumping off point for outdoor adventures. The city lies along both banks of the beautiful Spokane River. Visitors can book a guided fishing, paddling or rafting trip. Kayaking enthusiasts can enjoy park and play rapids such as Sullivan Hole and Zoo Wave. For those who prefer to experience the river by foot or bike, the paved Centennial Trail runs along the shore. At Mirabeau Point Park, hikers can explore 55 acres, or bring the kids to CenterPlace'smulti-sensory Discovery Playground.
The Dishman Hills Natural Area trails weave through nearly 2,500 acres of nature preserve. In the winter, world-class skiing can be found at five regional resorts.
Late spring through summer is the best time to enjoy a rafting, floating or kayaking trip down the Spokane River. Use your own equipment (don’t forget to check river levels and wear safety equipment) or hire a local company/guide service to assist.
Begin with a Spokane Valley favorite: breakfast at Little Euro, conveniently located on Sprague the center of the City.
Bring your own bicycle or rent bikes from The Bike Hub (three blocks from Appleway Trail), Fitness Fanatics (adjacent to Centennial Trail) or Traverse Ski and Bike. Hop on the Appleway Trail to ride through Spokane Valley or the Centennial Trail to enjoy a gentle breeze while riding adjacent to the Spokane River.
For an indoor winter activity – visit the Spokane Valley Escape room, attend a local Sip’n Paint class, or paint your own dish at Polka Dot Pottery. Multiple businesses offer these opportunities in the Valley.
