A landslide at Lake Whatcom Park is affecting use of the Hertz Trail. The Hertz Trail is closed to all users near the 1.25-mile trail marker. Whatcom County Parks is assessing the damage and will begin cleaning up the debris in coming days. For your safety, do not attempt to cross the slide debris.

        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.
