Then go for a hike or bike ride to see the various biomes in this park. There is a fish hatchery, the woods with mosses, ferns and the waterfall. An historic... More

Easy trail, perfect for our 7 and 9 year old boys to burn off some energy need before lunch. Great shaded trails, pine smells and waterfall!

It is a great destination, and Whatcom Falls Park is a true treasure within it. Just a few miles from the very center of the city, this is a close-in but serene... More

We stopped for a quick visit. The falls was flowing but not rushing, still pretty. Easy hiking trails and a neat fish hatchery and playground for kids.

Get lost in the forest. Pick blackberries at the Electric Avenue Entrance. Check out the variety of ducks on the pond. Look for the owl. The forest is so well preserved you'd think you were out by Mt. Baker. Stand by the CCC bridge and watch the river otters swim by. Sit on a bench and idle in the quiet... More
