When the government of Bellingham decided to convert their city into a green and eco-friendly place, they undertook the project of converting different abandoned railway tracks in the city into green walking and biking trails. The South Bay Trail was born out of this endeavour and soon became one of the most popular trail paths among the locals. One of the interesting features of this trail is that unlike the other green paths which run through woods, this one cuts through the city and connects some very important neighborhoods in the city. If you plan to explore the city on foot or go biking, follow this trail and you will pass through several important tourist destinations even as you interact with the locals along the path and get to know their lifestyle.
