We loved this park, would definitely go back. The falls are gorgeous. Be sure to find the huge swimming hole where adventurous kids were jumping off 20 foot rocks.

Whatcom Falls is a restorative place to stretch your legs and lose yourself in nature. You can either walk across the stone bridge (a WPA project - beautiful in itself), or you can find one of the lesser footpaths to walk down to the base of the falls. From there, you can trek your way under the bridge for both a look up at the falls or down the river. There's also a water chute that made me think of how fun it would be to use it as s slide down into the river.

It's an easy five-minute drive off of I-5 if you're heading from Seattle to Vancouver.
