Lake Whatcom Park & Lookout Mountain Forest Preserve Trail Development

Volunteer Work Party

With the adoption of the Lookout Mountain Forest Preserve & Lake Whatcom Park Recreational Trail Plan by the Whatcom County Council in 2016, trail planning in the "Lake Whatcom Reconveyance" is now complete. The plan outlines 90 new miles of multi-use and single-use non-motorized recreational trails to be built in the coming years.

Whatcom County Parks & Recreation has transitioned to the trail development phase of this project. In 2017, 2.4 miles of new foot and bike trail were constructed at Lake Whatcom Park. In 2018, approximately 5 miles of new trail were constructed at Lookout Mountain Forest Preserve.

An additional 6 miles of trails is planned for construction in summer 2019.
