“First time find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We saw this on a Bellingham map in the motel room, and visited before we left town. Really nice walking trails, well marked and some interesting plaques along the way; good views from some spots.

“Nice Views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

The Arboretum does provide a wonderful view of Bellingham. It is a bit run down and can be occupied by WWU students drinking/smoking sometimes - but is worth it if you can get there when it is clear of students!

“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.

“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.
