“Great natural get away in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

I found there to be some very good wooded trails and the look out tower was nice to catch a view.

A very good way to get out into nature if the time doesn't allow you to venture further.

“Lots of trails in a beautiful setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Didn't know what to expect, but found lots of hiking trails, a tower and "quiet rocks" (a bit of a mystery), as well as a tunnel through a rock. Very scenic high up over Bellingham.

“Treasure of trails, views and nature in the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

There is a wonderful network of trails with moderate elevation gains right in the middle of Bellingham. Climb the view tower for peeks of Mt. Baker, the city and the bay. Planned view trimming of the trees should soon expand the vista.

“a walk in nature in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

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.

“Hidden smack in the middle of town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

A great place to walk, run on forested trails right in the middle of town. You may see owls, ravens, pileated wood peckers and more. This is probably the most underutilized green space in town. We are very lucky to have it
