Just went on this hike today and it was easy and beautiful. We had a big surprise at the end when we saw 3 big turtles resting on a log in the lake. They then dove into the water. It was such a blessing to see.

Always a great hike because it’s easily accessible and scenic. On a hot day the forest canopy offers abundant shade, making for cool hiking.

Enjoyable walk around Lake Padden, 2.7 miles around..More of a woodland trail then a city trail. The Lake and surrounding views are nice.

Good easy walk. Has a nice off leash trail at the south end of the main trail and do park.

This is an easy 2.5 mile loop. It's a great everyday walk just to get the legs moving. Beautiful location and easily located close to Bellingham.

Good trail for a nice stroll or a run. Nothing spectacular, fairly heavily traveled. Nice lake to take a dip in after.

Lake Padden is a gravel trail that follows closely to the water edge. Great hike to stretch your legs and seeing local birds.

Local favorite groomed trail around the lake.

A WWU team was running it. Many locals were strolling it with friends and dogs.

We were sore from hiking the Oyster Dome the night before so this was our morning stretch before a second hike after breakfast then a kayak trip on Whatcom Lake. If would be a great after work walk.

Great place for a good quiet walk. If you are going clock-wise then just before you get to the dog park area there is a turn off that leads to a much bigger set of trails just to the east of the lake. That set of trails is great for dogs but beware, it is off leash and also lots of mountain bikers (most of which are pretty good about sharing the trails.)

Love this loop... I recommend for any age for a good leg stretch. Great views, and it goes through some steep hills through a forrest area then some flat around the lake. Beautiful area.
