From our downtown office, hike up to Western Washington University’s campus for a tour of the highlights of Sehome Hill Arboretum. Hike a variety of trails from a single track on the North Ridge Trail and Douglas Fir Trails and wider old roadbeds of Huntoon Trail. Along the way you will enjoy features that include the Quiet Rocks Area, Outdoor Learning Center, and Observation Tower that provide sweeping views of Bellingham Bay, Canadian Border Peaks, Mount Baker and Twin Sisters. This City Park is a public area that is closed to bicycles.
