My partner and I are new to Washington, and are getting back into our groove of regularly hiking. We drove up from Seattle to this trail, specifically hiking the Interurban trail from the Chicanut Trailhead. A sizable length of the trail overlaps with the railroad tracks, which traverses levee partially blocking an inlet of Bellingham Bay. The only gripe is once you have crossed the levee and arrive a the tunnel, the turn to the right which loops you back to the trailhead is not all that visible. Other than that, this trail offered us opportunities to take some of the best nature photography we have done to date. It is a must-hike trail.
