The Railroad Trail through east Bellingham runs for more than 3 miles between the city's Bloedel Donovan Park and Memorial Park, providing an off-road alternative to the cross-town route of Alabama Street. Following an old railroad right-of-way, the trail also provides access to Whatcom Falls Park trails via a spur at Whatcom Creek (down a slope to the south). St. Clair Pond, Scudder Pond and Lake Whatcom offer birding.
