Even though the temps are still brisk, sunny days in March can be excellent opportunities to get out and enjoy nature in The Pacific Northwest at its freshest. A great place to safely and easily take advantage of Whatcom County‘s natural beauty is to walk around Lake Padden. The maintained gravel trails only have a few medium slopes, and moms with strollers, walkers, joggers, and cyclists all share the 2.6 mile looped trail throughout the year. There is also a off-leash dog area nearby, as well as basketball courts, tennis courts, and other recreational activities as the weather continues to warm.
Residents of Bellingham‘s Samish neighborhood get great access to this recreational gem year-round. To find a great Samish home for you and your family, take a look at my free Northwest MLS home search.
