Course Description Resources
Begin your journey downtown at The Bellingham Farmers Market. Follow the South Bay Trail to Boulevard Park and on to Fairhaven via the Taylor Street dock. At the top of Taylor Street Dock, where you come out on 10th Street, run to the end of the road. STAY RIGHT around the big yellow gate and down. You will enter the trail at the mouth of Padden Creek as it empties into the lagoon. If you need a break (or to pass off to your relay teammate) there’s a bench there for your enjoyment. Wind through Fairhaven up the Padden Creek Trail and out on to the side of Old Fairhaven Parkway. Take a right on 34th Street and go to the end where you connect back with the Greenways System up the stairs to the gravel path into Lake Padden through the woods to end at the Horse Trailer Parking Lot.
