No trip to Orcas Island is complete without a visit to the top of Mount Constitution; a perfect culmination for hikers and bikers in Moran State Park. Bright golden sunshine on the blues and greens of the San Juan Islands offer breathtaking panoramas from horizon to horizon. Locals enjoy coming to Mount Constitution in the early summer mornings to see spectacular sunrises (if it’s not too foggy) over Mount Baker. Even crisp days can provide views of the fog-laden San Juan Islands for a different sight of mystery and wonder.
The road to Mount Constitution is open annually (although for safety reasons it is closed during heavy snowfall). Trails also lead to the summit from numerous starting points across Moran State Park including Cold Springs, Mountain Lake, and the West Boundary. Take a Washington State Ferry from Anacortes to beautiful Orcas Island and see what has been lauded as one of the best maritime views in the world!
