Whatcom County Parks & Recreation

Hertz Trail Temporarily Closed

As of March 9, 2020, the Hertz Trail at Lake Whatcom Park is now open. The Hertz Trail was closed last week around the 1.25-mile marker due to an active slide. Slide activity has stopped and Whatcom County Parks crews have completed clearing the slide materials from the trail. The trail is now fully open and unrestricted.

The Hertz Trail at Lake Whatcom Park is closed at the 1.25-mile trail marker due to an active slide and debris on the trail. Park staff will monitor the situation daily and cleanup will begin when it is safe. The trail will remain closed until further notice. For your safety, do not pass trail closed signs.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
