The hidden gem of the Samish Crest Trail is a piece of the puzzle that the Bellingham Greenways levy helps accomplish- connecting Bellingham neighborhoods with trails and parks. The trail brings you up to a lookout over the city and bay. It also continues from Racine Street through to Lake Padden for the adventurous in spirit!
According to the city: “This trail project is situated in the 113 acre Samish Hill Open Space adjacent to the Puget and Samish Neighborhoods. Future improvements will extend the trail south to Lake Padden Park with connecting trails to adjacent neighborhoods. The trail is 4′ wide with 1′ shoulders and surfaced with crushed limestone. Other improvements included a pet waste station, new wayfinding and native growth protection signage, drainage, wetland buffer enhancement planting and monitoring.” The signs along the trail reflect these improvements in place.
You’ll enjoy the sense of humor here in Bellingham as seen on the signs, reminding you “It’s your ‘Doody’ to pick up after your doggie.”
