I spent the afternoon with my cousin visiting this place. The falls were the most beautiful hidden gem in Bellingham. You can run, walk, jog, or bike. There are excellent photo opportunities around the area. I would definitely come back to visit here again.

We had just a day to visit Bellingham and we chose to visit Whatcom Falls Park. We find the place really close to the city just around 15 minutes and easy to reach and not so many people around. A very nice place to hike a bit and see the cascading water flow by. This place provides a solace from... More

Haven't been to this park before. Took 2, one-hour easy hikes. The Falls weren't tall, but very nice.

What a great walk in nature.... Hills and waterfalls, lakes and straight paths, as must see for anyone in the area. Plan on a dip in the water below the falls or just plan a hike, a great afternoon adventure.

Trails are amazing for young families and the waterfalls are safe and warm to jump in! If you can watch for locals when jumping as they can show you the safer places to jump. I took my GoPro and got some amazing pictures with the kids. I actually wrote a whole review of this day: http://adventureawaits.ca/water-fall-jumping/ The rest of the... More

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
