“Bicycling the trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

We started our bike ride where the trail begins near the Fairhaven Park and rode into downtown Bellingham. The area where you need to cross State Street will be eliminated in 2015 when the trail extension will be finished. Then it is direct from Fairhaven to downtown B'ham totally on a trail.

“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.
