Lake Whatcom Trail is a 3.1 mile point-to-point trail located near Bellingham, Washington and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and mountain biking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Lake views, family friendly, wildflowers and waterfalls Lots of large Douglas fir trees, cedar, maple and Madrone trees. The trail ends in 3 miles at a fenced private property. This is a good hike for birding. Lake Whatcom basin was carved by a glacier over a mile thick. It is filled by rain, mountain streams and water diverted from the middle fork of the Nooksack river which comes from the Deming glacier on Mt. Baker. This lake supplies water for over 60,000 people in the Bellingham area.
Pretty flat and easy.
Nice easy 3 mile trail on the edge of Lake Whatcom. Very close to town, but feels remote. Trail is wide and very well maintained. Light use the day we walked it.
This was a great hike/walk with my pups however, there were many dogs off leash. This made it extremely difficult for my partner and I to walk our dogs. The off leash dogs would run up to us on the trail and one was a little aggressive our dog that gets along with other dogs. The water was wonderful and the sunset was beautiful.
Nice wide trail! Easy walking! Beautiful lake!
Quiet! I expected more people in this flat wide trail. Soothing sounds brought to you by the lapping lake shore!
Great place to go for a walk. Also has lots of nice places to go and take a dip in the water.
I tried finding Whatcom Falls in this database but couldn't. So here is a review of Whatcom Falls! There are beautiful winding trails that lead to numerous swimming spots in the middle of the forest, just be sure to be sensible about jumping and the rocks and what not.
Love this Trail. you can do almost as many miles as you'd like depending on how much you want to run or walk. you have watering holes, pond, narrow trails, paved trails, stairs, etc. definitely a good work out. Definitely a must do.
Lovely. Beautiful woods. Biggest ferns I've ever seen!
Easy walking. Nice lake Whatcom view. Very relaxing atmosphere.
