7. Waypoint Park, Bellingham
Bellingham’s newer waterfront park, called Waypoint Park, occupies the site of the former Georgia Pacific paper mill and features a popular pump track. It’s a blast to ride and features some gentler bumps for beginners and some more challenging parts for next-level riders. Stop by here with your bikes and you’ll come across tons of kids plus some adults as well. We even saw a dad with a baby in a handlebar seat!
This spot near downtown Bellingham offers an extra-fun bonus, too. The wide-open site features Kulshan Brewing Co.’s Trackside Beer Garden, open every day. A rotating roster of food trucks feeds hungry pump track riders and families.
Details: Plan to park on the street along the edges of the pump track area. If you’re making a day or weekend of it, our guide to Bellingham gives lots more exploration ideas. This fun college town is full of amazing parks and outdoor recreation opportunities.
