Trail Running

  • The Chuckanuts offer some of Belligham’s best trail running just ten minutes south of downtown. The Chuckanuts are the PNW mini version of Big Sur and the only place where the Cascade mountain range meets the sea. There are many miles of terrain on dozens of trails to connect up and create your run with so make sure to grab a map before you head out. A great place to start is at Larrabee State Park and run up 1,000 feet to and around Fragrance Lake or take in views of beautiful Chuckanut Bay or continue up the road to the Ridge Trail and enjoy views of Mt. Baker.

  • Stimpson Reserve: If you are looking for a calmer (but equally ferny) rainforested trail, head to Stimpson Reserve along Lake Louise Rd between Bellingham and Sudden Valley with 4 beautiful hilly miles with a couple of loop options.

  • Mt. Baker Terrain: If you really want to climb high, take a short drive east along SR542 to try any one of the incredible hikes in the Mt. Baker Wilderness. Climb up almost 4,000 feet from the valley to the top of knife-edged Church Mountain or run along a ridge trail with amazing views of Mt. Baker, Mt. Shuksan and the rest of the area’s peaks almost the entire run. For those looking for a longer alpine experience, try out the 34 mile Copper Ridge loop in the North Cascades National Park. Run up the Chiliwack Valley with some of the biggest old-growth in the Cascades
