Plenty of trails and jumping into the whirlpool is a family favorite! there is plenty of paring form multiple entrances. The trails are well maintained and the scenery is gorgeous.

Nice gem in the middle of a neighborhood. Trails are woodsy and interesting, but the falls are low in volume now due to the drought, so not as beautiful as they could be.

A walk thru the woods and a nice waterfall to boost. It is not a high drop, but a great site for picture taking

Stopped by on our way up to Mt. Baker. It was very pretty. Had to hike a little ways to get to it but it was worth it.

I enjoy visiting every time I'm in B'ham. A truly wonderful jewel hidden in a small city. I prefer to hike the trails on weekdays because the weekends are crowded.

On the way to Alaska we stayed in Bellingham. We enjoyed hiking in this lovely park. Easy parking surrounded by suburbs. Wish we brought our bicycles.

We hiked the 5 miles from Bloedel-Donovan Park at Lake Whatcom all the way to Bellingham business district following Whatcom Creek. This first section down Alabama Hill to Woburn Street is the best. After that the trail is more urban crossing and joining roads. Start late morning so you can have lunch in the dense woods along the creek. Weekdays... More

We loved this place. Easy walking paths and trails throughout the park. Even a fall kids where jumping of high rocks into pools below. Not far out a town sits this wonderful park.

The Falls themselves are gorgeous and I love that there are so many trails to walk around and places to hike/climb. There is also a nice pool for swimming in the summer if you're so inclined. Ample parking and a nice little playground area where you can have a picnic.

This is an amazing place--and only a few minutes from Bellingham. Just a short, beautiful drive thru the forest and you are there. Also educational for kids: the salmon hatchery there!
