I use a mobility scooter and the walk (roll) was easy and enjoyable. The trail includes a park with bathrooms and coffee shop. Along the route were blackberry bushes with ripe fruit.

..which is on the water just between Fairhaven and Bellingham. At the park, get on the trail and take a right to go to Bellingham, a left to Fairhaven. A lovely walk on the boardwalk, either way.

What a beautiful trail. I loved how part of the trail was out over the water. I enjoyed the forrest path with views of the bay. Even ran into three juvenile deer on the trail! I spent about two hours sitting on the boardwalk just watching the people and reading. This spot would bring me back to Bellingham!

Free parking in many places along this trail, plus some parks, coffee shops, etc. Great views of Bellingham Bay, and on clear days Mount Baker and mountains in Canada.

My husband and I recently ran along the South Bay Trail, from downtown out to Fairhaven. I was a little concerned beforehand because it was quite sunny, and I thought the trail might be out in the open, but there was quite a bit of shade. We enjoyed the nice paved trail, gentle slopes, and water views. We'll definitely run... More

Travel along this trail and enjoy the sweeping bay views. Populated by walkers, runners, dog-lovers and people enjoying a breezy day with glorious views.

This is a nice path which is sheltered in the summer because it is lined with trees on both sides. The only drawback is that the trees block some of the views of the ocean. Along the path, there are little posts with historical facts on them.
