Haxton Way Trail in Lummi Nation

More pictures of Lummi Reservation and Haxton Way Trail, taken June 2014.

I heard there was a new bike trail near Lummi Casino so I rode out there on a nice day a few weeks back.

The trail goes along Haxton from Slater to Kiwina Roads. About 2 miles. It's not that long, but it's paved and even has solar powered street lights.

Some might ask, why spend money for this trail, but I read that since 1988 there have been 16 deaths along Haxton. Car accidents, car pedestrian and car bike accidents.

I don't ride out in Lummi lands very often because of narrow roads and traffic, but the situation is improving. Might as well have a safe "non car" route to the Casino which is a large employer at Lummi.

I accessed the north end of the trail from Slater Road which does have a shoulder. Then I rode south along the trail to Kiwina, turned around and road north back to Slater. Trail runs along west side of Casino Parking lot and then south to Kiwina.

Little by little, the green healthy ways of getting around continue to grow.

Great 7 minute documentary video on the trail. Link added October 2013.

This is really good. I've been through some First Nations and they tend to have to walk on the highway. I always wondered why they didn't just make a walking path away from it for the locals to get around.
