“wonderful walking trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Access at Fairhaven for a 2.5 mile walk (or portion) to downtown. Walkway out over the water, a waterfront park with a great coffee shop halfway between. Gorgeous on a sunny day and not at all crowded mid week.

“A pleasant walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We have done pieces of this walk with grandchildren and without. It's paved. There are scenic views of the bay. There is a coffee shop an route and a playground. Cyclists and dog walkers, joggers, people young and old use this city gem.

“Lovely stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

This is a great place to be outside! You can sit at Woods coffee and enjoy the view, or take a stroll on the path over the water. If you keep a sharp eye out, you can see marine wildlife.

“This trail made my trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Long scenic boardwalk over the water, links to a wooded trail that leads you all the way to downtown Bellingham. Very well-groomed trail, felt safe, full of runners, walkers, and cyclists.

“City walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Great city trail, with a boardwalk stretch over the water leading to one of the best coffee shop locations anywhere! You can continue on a land-based path to the Saturday Market, about 2.2 miles one way from Fairhaven to downtown Bellingham.
