It won't be easy to forget these views from the top of Samish Hill overlooking Fairhaven, Lake Padden and out over Bellingham Bay. Samish hill is located just east of the I-5 freeway at exit 250 just before you get to Lake Padden (discussed below). You go north on 40th or Harrison to get to the top of the neighborhood know an Parkhurst.
The first island in the background is Lummi Island that is host to some amazing views on all sides of the island.
At the bottom of Samish Hill, you'll find Lake Padden with a full 2.6 mile walking path around the lake. Here is a list of some of the other amenities; swimming, horse trails, tennis courts, fenced dog park, baseball fields and much more. To the south end of the park you'll find a the Lake Padden Golf course and driving range only minutes from town.
