Once entering Arroyo Park, the trail follows along Padden Creek, then crossing at a footbridge, connects with the Hemlock Trail.
Along the Hemlock Trail, there are options to connect with many of the other trails within the Chuckanut Mountain trail system as you work your way around the lower portion of Chuckanut Mountain. Passing by a few remnants from the era of the Interurban Railway that once connected Bellingham to Mount Vernon, the trail finally works its way through Arroyo Park and reconnects with the Interurban Trail.
Since the route we had followed through Arroyo Park had been an easy trail and it was a lovely afternoon, we decided to continue on to Teddy Bear Cove before making our trek back to Fairhaven Park, and what a great decision that had been. We practically had the entire park to ourselves as we sat and enjoyed the view of the islands from atop of the bluff.
After exploring Teddy Bear Cove, we hiked the trail back up Chuckanut Mountain from the beach, followed the Interurban Trail until to the Hemlock trail. Following that trail back through Arroyo Park, we reconnected with the Interurban Trail and returned to our starting point at Fairhaven Park.
