Spokane Iron Bridge Description

On the eastern side of Spokane, a striking iron railroad bridge spans 560 feet across the Spokane River. Built in 1911 by the Oregon & Washington Railroad and Navigation Company, the bridge serviced mining areas in the Coeur d'Alene district of Idaho and the northern Bitterroot Mountains of Montana. The line closed in 1973 to make way for the 1974 Spokane World's Fair.

The bridge opened in 2012 and is just steps from the popular Centennial Trail State Park, a paved 37-mile rail-trail that extends to the Washington–Idaho state line.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in Mission Park (1208 E. Mission Avenue), just north of the bridge. Along the park's east side, you'll find the Centennial Trail State Park; take the trail south for a half-mile to reach the bridge.
