Beautiful Lake Whatcom Park in Bellingham offers a less crowded alternative to more popular destinations such as Oyster Dome and Mount Baker which also rivals amazing views. The lake is an excellent respite from the city that features hikes where you may discover waterfalls, lush forests, breathtaking vistas, and different species of birds traveling through.

After a day of exploring the local gem of Lake Whatcom Park, you’ll need a place to rest up and rejuvenate for your next day’s adventure in the Bellingham area.
Lake Whatcom Park is a glacially carved-out basin that is mostly fed by rainwater and mountain streams. For this reason, the area offers some interesting topography and is home to a diversity of ecosystems and habitats. It is an important lake in the area as it supplies water for over 60,000 people in the Bellingham area. Lake Whatcom Park was established in part to protect the precious water quality there. This non-motorized recreation area provides a place for running, hiking, biking, and horseback riding on miles of multi-use trails. The following are just a couple of trails you can hike in the Lake Whatcom area.
Enjoy hiking at Chanterelle Trail which was recently converted from a 5-mile roundtrip hike to a 10-mile roundtrip as part of a new recreation plan to create an extensive network of trails that will eventually include about 95 miles of multi-use trails in Lake Whatcom Park and beyond. The Chanterelle trail is a moderate trail that travels through a mix of forest types and ecosystems. This unique area supports a variety of wildlife as well. At the top of this hike, you’ll be rewarded with a wide-open view of Lake Whatcom, the Cascade foothills, Bellingham Bay, and the San Juan Islands.
The Hertz Trail, along the shoreline, follows the former Bellingham and Eastern Railway. Due to the gentleness of the grade of the hiking trail, it is a multi-use area where not only hikers, but mountain bikers, runners, and horseback riders can enjoy the trail as well. You can visit the picturesque waterfall as well as the secluded beaches and coves tucked away along this trail.
