Centennial Trail Committee
Purpose: Manage sponsorship and maintenance of Mile 17 of the Spokane River Centennial Trail.
The Spokane Mountaineers sponsor Mile #17 of the Spokane River Centennial Trail as part of the Friends of Centennial Trail's Adopt-A-Mile program.
The Spokane Centennial Trail is a paved, 37-mile pathway closely following the Spokane River. It passes through diverse urban and rural countryside including the very heart of Spokane, from the northwest end near Nine Mile Falls to the Idaho-Washington border and its connection with the North Idaho Centennail Trail. A community jewel, the ADA-accessible trail allows nature and wildlive viewing by non-motorized users such as walkers, runners, cyclists, and in-line skaters.
Maintenance of the community trail relies greatly on volunteers. The Spokane Mountaineers' Mile #17 is the portion of trail adjacent to Minnehaha Rocks and John Shields Park. Three trail clean-ups are conducted annually on Saturdays in spring, summer, and fall. Club members are needed on these mornings for pruning, weeding, sweeping, and garbage clean-up. Special thanks to Bill and Debbie Pierce for managing the Mountaineers's sponsorship of the trail, and for making the cleanups a great celebration of our community.
