Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature

WHATCOM FALLS & CREEK, BIG ROCK LOOP, AND THE STIMPSON FAMILY NATURE PRESERVE---a number of options

Date: Wed. 31 Jan, 2018 8:30 am

I. Whatcom Falls & Creek: Hike along Whatcom Creek from Whatcom Falls Park to the I-5 Freeway bridge and back, 4.4 miles RT, slight elevation gain.

II. Big Rock Loop: Instead of or in addition to the Whatcom Falls & Creek hike, you can do this hike, a 6 mile loop that begins and ends at Whatcom Falls Park. This loop takes the hiker north; some ups and downs; a few short, steep sections; mostly trail with some sidewalk/road walking.

III. Stimpson Family Nature Preserve:  If you wish to do this hike after I, II, or both above, then drive to the Stimpson Family Nature Preserve and hike up to 4 miles there, about 400 ft. elevation gain.  

For all of the above, meet at 8:30 am at the I-5/Chuckanut Drive Park-n-Ride near exit 231 from I-5; OR meet at 9 am at the Whatcom Falls Park parking lot on Arbor Street off of Electric Avenue.  Ride with those who plan to do the hike(s) you wish to do.  When all return to your car, you may leave.
