Galbraith Mountain is a very popular area of trails that backs the southeast side of Bellingham. The working-forest is really part of Lookout Mountain, but Galbraith or sometimes "Galby" have long been the recognized designation for this beloved network of trails. Efforts from the WMBC - Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition have continued to make Galbraith a renowned recreation destination enjoyed by a variety of trail users.
