On Friday, August 25, 2017 South Fork Park opened to the public. The opening followed several months of construction that began in 2016. South Fork Park features an asphalt parking area for hikers and bicyclists, an equestrian gravel parking area, a vault restroom, and trails. 

Visitors can travel down the short forested trail to an open, active agricultural field with panoramic South Fork Valley views. Take some time to explore the riverside where Whatcom County, Whatcom Land Trust and the Lummi Nation have been working to enhance wildlife habitat building in-stream structures and replanting native vegetation in the reparian area. The river is home to steelhead, bull trout and salmon.  

Future plans for South Fork Park include building a connecting trail to the Overby Farm and Nesset Farm and homestead.

Galbraith Farm Trail
Explore the Galbraith Farm Trail which begins at the parking lot. Hike or bike the first .25 miles through the densely forested area. You will see a variety of conifers, hardwoods and native shrubs leading to a large open agriculture field. Equestrians may join the soft surface trail around the active agriculture field. Elk, deer or bear may be foraging or eagles soaring overhead. Take time to notice the Galbraith Barn ruins about a mile on the soft surface trail. This easy, level looped trail will lead you back to the main South Fork parking lot.
