Came for a morning stroll (walk) and found the park very beautiful. There are no signs anywhere and we had to be careful to travel back the same way we entered but it's not very big so it wasn't a problem. Lots of locals about...More

Enjoyed a leisurely and very green walk on a rainy day. A popular place for dog walkers. My 15 year old wants to return when it is hotter and swim in the swimming hole next to the waterfall.

This park is so beautiful. From the falls to the swimming and diving cliffs to the fish hatcheries and picnic areas real nice place. Lot's of shade so extra great on a HOT day.

Spent a couple of hours walking the trails, taking photos and sitting beside the creek. Saw some people swimming near the smaller falls. Looked at the fish hatchery on the way out too. Trails are dirt and gravel, and pretty flat all through park. Easy...More

On a sunny day in Bellingham, we visited Whatcom Falls Park. A short hike through the woods brought us to the beautiful falls. It is so soothing to hear the rushing water through the canopy of the forest. It is a great place to relax...More

About how long does it take to get around the park if we were to stick to the main trail area and view the falls?

Hi, I would download a pdf of the available trails, there are 3-5 miles of trails in the park, but at least an hour on the main trail. There is a PDF of the trails you can dowload, I can't post a link here, as it's... More
