Bellingham, Washington Map

Super easy, good for a quick run! Took my 12 week old puppy up with no problem!

Parked at the trail head today and my car plus all the cars next to mine were broken in today many valuables were stolen so be careful parking at the trailhead!

Very easy walk in the woods on dirt trails...some trails next to creek. The Whatcom Falls is a bonus. You can expect walkers, hikers, runners, bikes and dogs. Family friendly.

Awesome time and beautiful water falls

Best example of Northwest Rain Forest.
A must for anyone visiting or new to Bellingham. The short uphills and frequent bends make it an interesting run too.

Great hike, did the Lower and Waterfall loops and plan to go back to do all three!

Great challenging first time hike....totally enjoyed the hike up with friends....#firsthikeever

Awesome trail! Lots of great views and the lake is beautiful! Beware, lots of dogs off leash.

The trail was great! The hike is a lot of climbing at an incline. The lake was beautiful. Definitely a fun and challenging hike for my family of beginners.

This was a beautiful trail, not too remote and not difficult. Lots of places to enjoy a snack and the lake.

great trail, with great views.

First time there, had a lot of fun. Definitely plan on making more trips.

lung buster for a good workout.

We actually didn't end up going to the lake. Instead we walked the fragrance lake trail until you are nearly at the lake, and instead took a right, then a left up the mountain to Cleator road. Once we got to Cleator road we continued uphill to the Cyrus Gate Outlook. It's a lot of uphill but wasn't very difficult for us, as moderate hikers. That view is worth it.

One of my favorite trails - my only complaint is that it's so darned popular! Lots of people everywhere. There's lots of places to explore and no two hikes are the same.

Fun trail! A bit steep at the beginning but the views around the lake are nice. Need a hike in under an hour? This may be it!
