I’m looking for some of the best smoke spots in Bellingham. There are parks all over the place, but I’m looking for the best spots based on privacy, the view, near by restaurants, and whatever else you can think of.
May I suggest Token Herb? It is near the bay so you will see a nice view. It is a smoke shop so you can find what you are looking for should you need to restock. That place was recently featured in a travel guide so it is a good spot and people like that place.
Having grown up in Bellingham, this one is easy. You have to check out Whatcom Falls. This area is fantastic, and during the week, is quite sparse. You’ll get more traffic on the weekends. The link for the map is https://www.cob.org/documents/parks/parks-trails/trail-guide/whatcom_falls.pdf. It’s a great spot that is friendly so you shouldn’t be turning too many heads! It’s definitely the most private area too!
Definitely don’t miss the Sehome Hill Arboretum. It’s a completely wooded area with a great view on the ground, but the kicker is there is an observation tower you can go up in and get the view of a lifetime. All the trails are nice and marked, and the locals are friendly and helpful. Do yourself a favor and check this out.
One of my favorite places to just mellow out and smoke is at the tiny Baker Hotsprings. The area, nestled off of Baker Lake-Grandy Lake Road, is super secluded and just stunning. The springs are located at the base of Mr Baker, surrounded by large pine trees. The springs invoke different feelings, depending on the time of day you visit. In the morning, it’s as if Spring is all around you. Stay there until (or after) dusk and it takes on an eery and haunting feel.
Whatcom Falls Park is a gorgeous and chill place to toke. Just, as always, try to stay out of open view because you never know who is gawking. There is a waterfall, a fishing pond, and trails so plan to spend the whole day here having a nice relaxing time!
