Railroad Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"The Railroad Trail makes a gradual climb through quiet neighborhoods and to Whatcom Falls Park. (If you prefer to head downhill, start from the park.) The trail is lightly wooded for most of its length.

The 251 acre park has a network of trails that can get you off track. You might enjoy a planned detour to the creekside. Picnic facilities are available at both Whatcom Falls and Bloedel Donovan Parks; the former has a kids’ fishing pond and hatchery."
