“Lovely stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

This is a great place to be outside! You can sit at Woods coffee and enjoy the view, or take a stroll on the path over the water. If you keep a sharp eye out, you can see marine wildlife.

“This trail made my trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Long scenic boardwalk over the water, links to a wooded trail that leads you all the way to downtown Bellingham. Very well-groomed trail, felt safe, full of runners, walkers, and cyclists.

“City walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Great city trail, with a boardwalk stretch over the water leading to one of the best coffee shop locations anywhere! You can continue on a land-based path to the Saturday Market, about 2.2 miles one way from Fairhaven to downtown Bellingham.

“Bicycling the trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

We started our bike ride where the trail begins near the Fairhaven Park and rode into downtown Bellingham. The area where you need to cross State Street will be eliminated in 2015 when the trail extension will be finished. Then it is direct from Fairhaven to downtown B'ham totally on a trail.

“My fav hiking trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

This trail is along the Lake Whatcom. There are some areas to jump in for a cool off after a long hot walk. There is also a waterfall on the trail. The round trip is about 6 miles...flat terrain. Great for family with young kids.
