A cross Bellingham bicycle route I like. Part trail. Part road. To be used in conjunction with a map, or Google map of Bellingham.
Railroad Trail from Lake Whatcom and Whatcom Falls area down past Barkley Village.
Cross I-5 on it's own bridge. Then south on Lincoln Street.
Lincoln goes under Alabama Street near I-5.
Kentucky or Iowa Street. Iowa has a stoplight across busy James. West to bike path east of Options High School. Part of Iowa is gravel lot, but still goes through. Kentucky is paved.
Looking back the way you have come past Options High School.
Cross Ohio Street. Follow bike path across little bridge over whatcom Creek.
Looking back the way you've come as you cross York and follow Railroad Avenue through Downtown Bellingham.
Past bus terminal at Railroad and Magnolia. Follow Railroad across Holly, Chestnut, Maple to Laural.
East on Laural to South Bay Trail which passes more apartment buildings.
South Bay Trail to Railroad Crossing.
Old picture from train crossing. Now there is a pedestrian signal.
Through Boulevard Park to walkway if you wish to go slow, or take Bayview Street (car access to park) to 10th Turn left on 10th just before Boulevard.
If one is in more of a hurry, one can skip South Bay Trail and Boulevard Park. Take the Boulevard Street with it's shoulder.
Follow 10th Street to another trail segment.
Continue on 10th again through Fairhaven District.
Pick up trail again at where 10th bends around to Donovan.
Under 12th Street Bridge and along Padden Creek to Interurban Trail.
South along Interurban Trail north of Old Samish Highway.
