Dog walk

Great place to leash walk a dog. Many trails to enjoy. The bridge across the stream by the falls is a beautiful setting

This place is a great little get away into the woods in the middle of the city. Beautiful place to stroll through and take pictures of your surroundings. Summer 5ime it's a great place to jump off the cliffs into the chilly waters below the falls.

I walk with a cane or trekking poles, but this trail is easily doable. If it gets too steep or too slippery there are paths to give alternative routes. the wooden posts which list distances are especially helpful. my favorite area is the picturesque stone bridge and the waterfall area. Ideal place to do Tai Chi.

Great little park close to downtown Bellingham. Follow the quick hike to the falls for some spectacular views. Well worn walking trails. Also saw several people on their bikes. Pocket park play structures for kids.

Whatcom Falls Park is amazing to go hiking at and great place for children to play at. They have two different areas for children, one is more for older kids and the other is 0-5 year olds. They have a lovely fish hatchery and you can view the fish in the area with a learning curve. If you have dogs,... More

It's so impressive to me to find a park like this in the middle of a town like Bellingham . I went a bit late which was still good I got a few minutes before it fell dark . The little waterfalls are beautiful and the walk around was relaxing and beautiful .

Beautiful short hike with amazing views even on a rainy day! Besides the falls, the moss covered bridge was my favorite part! Because of the heavy rains there recently, the water was just cascading of the rocks. We took may pictures. It was definitely worth going to see and we were there only about 45 minutes, so don't miss it!... More

Whatcom Falls Park is a fantastic place to spend an hour or an afternoon. The trails are great; mostly wide and gravel covered. Some side trails are smaller; what you'd expect to encounter on a walk in a forest. The old, stone bridge is a beauty and offers a great view of the falls. When the kids get tired of... More

Whatcom Falls Park is a gem in an urban area - a great waterfall hike which is easily accessible for kids, dogs and just about everyone. The historic CCC built stone bridge is wonderful and comes within about 6 feet of the waterfalls - you fell like you can reach out and touch 'em! Lots of fun!

Thank Jan N
