The Whatcom Falls Pump Track was built in partnership by the Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition and the City of Bellingham in 2017. The track features both intermediate and advanced loops, along with a beginner track designed for strider bikes without pedals for children just learning to ride. This is a great place for the whole family to enjoy and improve their bike handling skills.
