“Good walking spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This is a lovely, scenic place for a good long walk, not too crowded. Access via Bellingham or Fairhaven.

“A nice walk and view of the sound and surrounding area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

You can start at either end of the trail and the experience is different depending where you start. It's a nice stroll, lots of fresh air, birds & other creatures. Places to stop and have a picnic.

“Nice walk”

Great waterfront views. Not too long a trail. Easy to navigate. A favorite place to go in the summer.

“Picturesque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Bridge over the water connecting to a park. Fun to walk any time of the day. Huge benches to sit and star gaze. Will have to return to see the northern lights!

“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.
