“My fav hiking trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

This trail is along the Lake Whatcom. There are some areas to jump in for a cool off after a long hot walk. There is also a waterfall on the trail. The round trip is about 6 miles...flat terrain. Great for family with young kids.

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.

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!
