“Great Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We only did a search for the town because we were staying overnight to do a whale tour. This was the best surprise ever! It is beautiful and you could walk and explore around forever. Hidden treasure. Favorite part was watching locals jump into the hidden lagoon. Would definitely stop again. Totally free too!

“What a breathtaking spot in Bellingham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We did this as a side trip - recommended by some travel book and boy are we glad we stopped. Beautiful waterfall, lovely woods, trails everywhere. You could walk down near the stream and it was simply lovely. Parking ample - don't miss this during your trip

“Beautiful falls & a great trail to walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

There are two parking lots to pick from, one off Lakeway & one from electric. Both entrances have playgrounds. Parking lot at the Lakeway entrance makes it easy to get to the bridge & the falls for anyone not able to walk far. The trail across the bridge is a great walk that loops back. Wonderful break from the city.

“Beautiful secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Visiting Bellingham Whatcom Falls is a peaceful beautiful place to visit. There are many trails for running or walking through the forest, and the falls are a quick visit from the parking lot if you are short on time. You can park in an upper parking lot by the fields and tennis courts, (right across from Lafeens donut shop, if you want a wonderful treat) the trail down the hill to the falls, or you can access it from the lower parking area and just walk a few feet down that trail to a beautiful bridge over looking the falls. The trails go along in places close to the river, so keep your kids close in hand and take a jogger stroller if you need one for ease in maneuvering over the trails and tree roots in places.
