This beautiful and well-maintained trail provides a lovely path from Fairhaven to Downtown Bellingham, with a gorgeous little interlude at Boulevard Park along the way. So, so lovely.

Great park. Sunsets are amazing. It's always busy but never crowded. An easy walk to many many good restaurants.

A leisurely walk with beautiful views. The path is well maintained and there are posts with historical information along the way (I didn't actually read them though).

I use a mobility scooter and the walk (roll) was easy and enjoyable. The trail includes a park with bathrooms and coffee shop. Along the route were blackberry bushes with ripe fruit.
