It was a thrill to see the lovely falls and river in Whatcom Falls Park. The trail parallels the river and is easy hiking. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Washington.

The waterfall was beautiful and the stone bridge was awesome! I liked that there were sections of trails that my dog was allowed to go off leash. It was a really beautiful area.

Whatcom Falls is truly the hidden gem of Bellingham. I have never ceased to find the park a breathtaking sanctuary, rich with incredible, idyllic scenes in each and every season. Don't let snow deter you, the park is every bit as glorious in the winter as it is spring and fall. If you bring dogs, please, please keep them on... More

Just steps from the parking lot and we found ourselves in a green, misty magical fairyland. Beautiful and breathtaking.

Very nice park for a gentle hike in the woods with tall conifer trees and a stream with waterfalls. Also, there is a fish hatchery at the park, with several circular ponds full of trout and salmon.

I had a beautiful walk with my wife one day and a solo run yet another. What a gem right in the middle of Bellingham!....lush vegetation, great trails, just a super place to spend some quiet time!

What a beautiful treasure! This park so picturesque, I was in awe. We visited the park just before sunset. The waterfall is definitely the main attraction. But the trails are wonderful too! One thing to note, once you get off the main trail that crosses over the river, the trails are not very good for the average stoller. Terrain-wheeled strollers... More
