This sweet little county park is a beautiful resting place, with a scenic cement bridge and very short walk to the main waterfalls. While not as dramatic as the larger falls to be found in Oregon and more easterly in Washington, this little park is a perfect place to have a picnic and stretch your legs. There is a trail... More

We visited Bellingham during our family reunion with 11 children under the age of 13. We all enjoyed hiking around Whatcom Falls Park. There are short hikes just .2 - .6 miles if you have young kids and need something easy. Of course if you would rather a longer hike, there are plenty of trails to do so. The trails... More

What an unexpected surprise - within a few steps we were at the Stone Bridge and the first waterfall. A nice walk and many unexpected areas - waterfalls, ponds, great location and beautiful area. Must see!

Pretty little park, close to everything. The falls are gorgeous & there are places to swim to cool off in the summer time.

We enjoyed the falls and the bridge was beautiful. The small falls, pond and hatchery were about all the focal point we saw, so nothing extra special about this park. The trails nor the park entrance don't have a lot of information. There was a play area near the parking lot for the kids, which was pretty nice.

Between the amazing waterfall and huge fir trees you can feel the pure oxygen going straight into your lungs. The trails provide wonderful invigorating walks or bike rides with surprise endings.

The waterfall isn't much. But there is a nice walk to a peaceful pond and to a trout hatchery. Other hikes are available in the park.
