We took the trail through the park on a family visit. It was beautiful. The path was good, though we took the stairs down to see the fish hatchery. There are an a aging number of trails through the park.

What a beautiful park and hiking trails. They have an old stone bridge and waterfalls. Terrific for hiking or finding a bench and taking in the beautiful scenery.

Whatcom Falls Park has great trails for walking and biking that intersect with neighborhoods. The bridge across Whatcom Creek is a lovely place for photos. There are spots to swim. Look carefully on some of the trails and you'll find some bird carvings!

Yes, there are many places in the park to read a book. If you want to be near the falls, I would of course bring a folding chair or spread a blanket.

you can do in as little as 10 minutes. the falls are right off the parking lot. if you follow the trails you can walk for as long as you'd like.
