One thing that is lovely about Bellingham is that there are so many trails and walks in wooded areas without having to leave the city. The arboretum offers a variety of trails that snake all around the mountain and the backside of Western Washington's campus. There is also a small lookout tower that offers a view of the bay on a clear day at the top. You can drive almost to the top and park at the parking lot or park at the bottom and hike all the trails. Another great place to take dogs and many of the trails here are off leash (any unpaved trails) and a wonderful way to get from campus to the surrounding areas too. Highly recommended.
