Travel along this trail and enjoy the sweeping bay views. Populated by walkers, runners, dog-lovers and people enjoying a breezy day with glorious views.

There are lots of places from which to view the amazing sunsets in Bellingham but none are better than from here. Whether strolling after a nice dinner in Fairhaven or simply out for some fresh air, this is the place to be. Absolutely stunning!
