Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking in Bellingham and Whatcom County is a year-round sport that draws people from around region and the world to its' trails. The range of thrills varies from cruising on flat wide open paths up to big stunts and screaming downhill runs.

Best Place to Mountain Bike! Singletracks ranked Galbraith Mountain as the best place to mountain bike in Washington state. Rankings were based on the number and quality of Singletracks members’ reviews and the number of visits riders make to each trail during the year.  

Ranked among the top 10 places to ride in the nation by Singletracks Magazine, Galbraith Mountain is located between Lake Padden and Lake Whatcom and officially named North Lookout Mountain.

Galbraith Mountain is privately owned land and the trails are maintained by the WMBC (Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition) for non-motorized use.

WMBC also maintains the Bellingham Dirt Jump Park at Civic Field, located near the skate board park on Puget Street one block south of Lakeway Drive. The park includes a variety of jumps including 2-foot, 3-foot, 5-foot and 7-foot for riders of all ability levels. A 15-foot high roll produces the needed speed for the runs.

This pump track is located downtown at the waterfront, near Waypoint Park. There is plenty of parking in the gravel parking lot at the west end or on the road along W Laurel St. or Granary Ave. 

Some trails on Chuckanut Mountain are available for biking, as well as US Forest Service and logging roads in the region. Contact the Forest Service for details.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
