“A reat place to hike all year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

This is by Western Washington Uni. There is a tower to climb and the view of parts of Belllingham is awesome. A romantic hike as this trail is not as popular as Whatcom Falls Park.

Easy trail, runs behind the WWU campus. Great view from the observation tower. Fun walking through the tunnel!

“Beautiful Views, and Hiking Options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The view from the tower at the top of the hill is very nice, and there are trails that lead various places. If you want a good aerobic hike, you can park at the very bottom by the gate and hike up to the top. Lush vegetation is a feast for the eyes at various times of the year.

“Great place for a walk/run”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

This is a lovely area to go for a walk or run. There are a number of interconnecting trails in a lush, beautiful landscape on the edge of the university. This is a great place to spend an hour or two in the forest, very close to downtown.

“Nice walk in the woods.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

OK as an arboretum you might think you'll see a lot of exotic tree and shrub species. It's not that sort of place..more native plant oriented but the trails are good and the viewpoint structure is a nice touch.
