It is very tricky to narrow down trails to choose in the Mount Vernon/ Bellingham area. They (based on our All Trails App) look absolutely gorgeous. But when my mom suggested a four mile trek I broke out into a sweat, fearing another steep cliff situation (even though the past cliff trail was the most beautiful of all). I did a quick search and found Boulevard Park. While it was a bit challenging to get to, it proved quite worth it.
Salt water scents.
Strong coffee aroma.
Local chocolate ice cream and vanilla shake to end our day.
