Trail shared by Eric Ashley

A mellow paved trail to the Observation Tower.

Features Views

Open 6:00 a.m. to dusk.

Description

This short paved trail leaves from the western end of the parking lot and meanders across the top of Sehome Hill
to access the Watch Tower. Hikers can march up the several flights of the wooden tower to enjoy a view across Bellingham and to the water. Unfortunately, the Watch Tower isn't always well cared for, and litter and graffiti sour what would otherwise be a very pleasant experience.
