06 – Whatcom Creek and Waterline Trails

With a light dusting of snow on the ground, I decided a hike along Whatcom Creek would be a great way to enjoy the winter day. With the Whatcom Creek Trail barely a mile from my home, I opted to take a walk through the neighborhood rather than drive my car to reach the trailhead.

Walking through the neighborhood to the trailhead, very light snow is falling

From the Whatcom Creek trailhead at Meador Street, it is only a short distance to the trail’s I-5 underpass, and then an easy hike along the creek. Following the Whatcom Creek Trail to Woburn Street, I followed the sidewalk along Woburn Street until I came to the trailhead for the Waterline Trail. Following the Waterline Trail for quite a distance up the hill toward Whatcom Falls Park, I eventually turned around, headed back to Woburn Street and then cut through city streets again until I reached the trail that goes through Salmon Park. Following that trail, I again intersected with the Whatcom Creek Trail and followed it back to my starting point at Meador Street, heading back home. A distance of approximately six miles was covered and it was such a beautiful hike with the added beauty from the dusting of snow along the trails.
