“A pretty walk with a nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We started at Fairhaven Inn and walked down to Woods Coffee. It's a pleasant trail along the water. An occational train will make for some noise as the tracks parallel the path. At some point, the city added a nice over water section of the trail. It's a cool little treat for us walkers. We took a break on one of the benches on the pier.

Just beyond Woods Coffee, there's a nice picnic area that we took advantage of later in our trip. This is a neat urban trail.

“Wonderful bayside walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2011

My daughter and I had just moved to Bellingham and discovered this trail when visiting Fairhaven one day. We were looking for a place to walk and were thrilled to discover this trail. From Fairhaven the trail goes out into the bay across a very long pier which connects to a long sweeping foot bridge that curves out across the water and around a point where it connects to land again. There are plenty of places to sit and a covered picnic area at the end of the pier as well as a small boat dock. We did not go all the way around the point but intend to go back soon. The bay is so beautiful; you can see the islands, sailboats... I can't wait to go back and walk the full length and back again.
