We walked this path from Bellingham to Fairhaven in about an hour now a beautiful morning. Easy path through light foliage and good views of water. If we lived here I would walk it often!

A wonderful flat trail that goes partly over the Puget Sound waters, partly through parks. It connects Fairhaven to downtown Bellingham. We enjoyed our brisk walk there and recommend it strongly.

My last few visits to B'ham have seen me spending some time on the South Bay Trail. I enjoy running here as an out-n-back 5-miler. The trail funs from downtown B'ham to Fairhaven. Very near the center is Boulevard Park which offers a playground, places to sit overlooking the bay and The Woods Coffee. One of my family's favorite things... More

I had some time to kill in Fairhaven so I thought I would explore the trail and get down to the water. I had no idea I would end up OVER the water on a beautifully built walking pier, would find my way to and through a park, and eventually make my way into downtown Bellingham. I'm not sure exactly...

Bellingham is a wonderful place to live, because you don't even have to leave town to have a vacation. There is so much to do in town. From Downtown Bellingham, if you have a hour or so, you can catch the South Bay Trail, which features wooded shady stretches and great views out to the bay. The trail can be... More

An urban trail, alongside the water, with a very pleasant view. Very well used, so you won't be on your own on a weekend. Cared for trail for the most part and an easy walk.

Even with a chill in the air, no one was dissuaded from this pleasant walk along the beachside, along a long dockside, and into Fairhaven. The pleasant stop halfway through for coffee made the trip perfect.

Out over the ocean, beside the ocean, through a park and down a nature trail. Lovely, breath taking and enjoyable every single time.

Next time you visit Bellingham, make sure to detour to the Fairhaven District and take a walk along this beautiful trail. Then stop for lunch at one of the great restaurants in the area.

An urban trail that's quiet, clean and scenic. Whether by foot or bike, this is a great way to get from south Bellingham to Fairhaven. Much of the trail is within Boulevard Park and the park has waterfront and facility options. Taylor Dock is a short detour worth the time.
