Millennium Trail Through Bellingham Washington

Bellingham WA Millennium Trail

Chuckanut - Fairhaven - Bellingham - Ferndale -  Birch Bay - Blaine - White Rock B.C.

Millenniumtrail.com's Official Coast  Millennium Trail Online Guide50 Mile Route

The creation of the Coast Millennium Trail is an exciting project that incorporates a number of improvements to existing trails and links together bike lanes to create an impressive 50 mile long bike trail through one of Northwest Washington's most beautiful regions .     This will become in effect a cyclist dream highway stretching from Colony Creek in northwestern Skagit County,  all the way to the Canadian Border in Blaine.  

This Millennium Trail route winds its way past Larrabee State Park off Chuckanut Drive and then weaves its way through historic Fairhaven, then passes through various waterfront and water view parks as it rounds Bellingham Bay.   Once leaving Bellingham the trail passes through Ferndale, Birch Bay, and Blaine before reaching its final destination at White Rock B.C. where cyclist can then connect with Canadian trails and bikeways to destinations beyond. 

GRAND PLAN

Plans are in the making for a border-to-border hiking/biking trail from Southern California to the Canadian border and beyond. The route has been mapped out and defined, but just like any grand scheme-- the devil is in the details.   Fortunately, the Whatcom County portion of the trail is already in place and waiting for you to enjoy.   Do we really need a border-to-border trail?  It is hard enough to drive the distance by car and takes several days.  Would the the enormous cost of creating such a trail be worth it when only a small number of people would actually use it?                   What Do You Think About The Millennium Trail?

Chuckanut Beach - A stop along the Coast Millennium TrailStarting Point

One of the most popular places to begin the Whatcom County portion of the millennium trail is from the Larrabee State Park off of Chuckanut Drive.    

Larrabee has plenty of parking, a large campground, and most of all it is a beautiful and fun place to begin your journey.    You will want to allow time to explore the miles of hiking trails in this magnificent   2,683-acre State park.

Another popular resting place on your way to the US/Canadian border is the beautiful Birch Bay State Park in northern Whatcom County.     The small waterfront town of Birch Bay is just beyond the gates of the park, where you will find a small market where you can stock up on supplies, and there are a number of quaint water view restaurants where you can enjoy a hearty meal before continuing on your way.
