This trail has tons of entry points all over the city, which makes it perfect to go from point A to point B without needing a car while enjoying nature. Perfect walk with kids (they can skip ahead) & strollers or just a great bicycle ride.

We got on the trail around 10th street and walked toward the Bay. We only met one person along the way and when we got to a crossroad we saw a man relieving himself without any trace of embarrassment. It was fairly dark and gloomy on that stretch of path and we left it as soon as possible. We walked... More

The trail has an abundance of entry points and includes everything from city views to parks to bay views. One of our favorite portions is near the waterfront and Boulevard Park. Good for walking and bicycles.

Bellingham's Interurban Trail is actually a long system of connected trails originating in the Fairhaven District and following Padden Creek to the Sehome District, then following scenic Chuckanut Drive to Larrabee State Park. Most travels through dense, lush, beautiful coastal rainforest. There are spurs leading to Marine Park, Fairhaven Park, Lake Padden, Chuckanut Mountain, Downtown, and other interesting locations. Well... More

If you are visiting Bellingham and you enjoy walking/biking you have to take time to walk the trails. A beautiful walk would be the trail between downtown Bellingham and the artsy berg of Fairhaven. This trail has it all! It's fairly flat so perfect for families, you get to view the ocean, cross a train track, play in a park... More

This trail for the most part follows the grade of the Whatcom-Skagit Interurban Railway, which was then renamed Pacific Northwest Traction Company, and ran between Bellingham and Mount Vernon from 1912 to 1928 (formally disbanded in 1930). With the exception of switchbacks that replaced a former trestle over a creek near its origin on the south end of Bellingham, the... More

I did the ride from the B'ham waterfront to Larrabee State Park with my 15 yr old and 12 yr old son. The switchbacks through Arroyo Park were a bit more challenging and required us to get off our road bikes more than I would have liked, and we kept hoping for more than a few peek-a-boo views across the...

Trail follows an old streetcar line, so the grade is practically non-existent, except where they took out the trestles. At these points it has several steep hills which are a challenge. Otherwise, it is a nice ride to Larrabee State Park and back. (About 14 miles)

Start in Fairhaven and follow this trail all the way to Larrabee State Park, about 4.8 miles one way (or turn around at Arroyo Park, about 1.8 miles on way). Once you reach the state park, there are plenty of other trails to explore--in the forest, around small lakes, and onto rock ledges with grand views of the islands.

This is one of the many aspects that make Bellingham an amazing place. You can get ANYWHERE using the incredible interurban trail system they have - and it is well-maintained and perfect for walking, running or biking. It is also simply beautiful year-round!
