Spokane is a city brimming with natural beauty. Spokane's nearness to the northern Idaho Rocky Mountains and Lake Coeur d'Alene make it a fantastic epicenter for outdoor activities including hiking, swimming and skiing. Active residents and sporty travelers alike adore the Spokane River Centennial Trail which starts at Nine Mile Falls and follows the river for 37 miles to the Idaho State line. The trail has three areas; two of which are flat and one, Riverside State Park, that offers rolling trails of various difficulty. Winter sports lovers looking for great slopes and terrain flock to Mt. Spokane Ski and Snowboarding Park situated in Mount Spokane State Park. During the spring and summer seasons, two well known annual fitness events take place in Spokane; The Lilac Bloomsday Run and Hoopfest. The Lilac Bloomsday Run, a 7.46 run/walk race, was started in 1977 and is open to runners, walkers, wheelchairs and strollers. Hoopfest, a 3 on 3 street basketball tournament, brings in over 6,000 teams from across the nation and includes two days of intense competition. Additionally, Spokane has numerous gym, health club and swimming facilities like Northpark Racquet Club and Oz Fitness.
