Overview

Galbraith Mountain is a very popular area of trails that backs the southeast side of Bellingham. The working-forest is really part of Lookout Mountain, but Galbraith or sometimes "Galby" have long been the recognized designation for this beloved network of trails. Efforts from the WMBC - Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition have continued to make Galbraith a renowned recreation destination enjoyed by a variety of trail users.

Local Info

The trails on Galbraith Mountain are built and maintained by mountain bikers and they account for most of the traffic. Hikers are still welcome to explore the excellent singletrack, forest surroundings, and viewpoints over the city and bay. Note that some trails are only open to descending bike traffic.
