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

my husband and i were so amazed with this beautiful park. The waterfall seems like music to our ears and the scenery was beyond our expectation. The views are marvelous. Highly recommended to visit.

As Canadians who live near the border we visit Bellingham often. One of our favourite hikes is Whatcom Falls Park as the trails are diverse and the falls picturesque. The hatchery near the park is fun for kids too. Bring your camera!

We took some mountain bikes on the bike path to the falls. The scenery was beautiful with full tree cover. The trails were well marked and smooth. Easy ride for even the most novice of bicyclists.

Miles of well-marked trails through beautiful forest, streams and waterfalls, you will think that you've landed in the middle of "The Hobbit". Located three miles from the Lakeway Inn off of Lakeway Drive, Whatcom Falls Park is situated within an easy walk to Lake Whatcom and Bloedel Donovan Park, as well as the trail head to Galbraith Mountain, (great for...

If you want an escape from shopping as and sight seeing take a walk through nature. Not only was this great excersize but absolutely brilliant views of waterfalls. The park was well maintained and you could get close to the falls for great pics
