Adventure Description

At 2,409 feet, Mount Constitution is the highest point in the San Juan Islands. Accessible by car or hiking trail, you can climb even higher to the top of a stone observation tower that provides panoramic views to the Cascades, including Mount Baker and Mount Rainier. Mount Constitution also overlooks the 5,252-acre Moran State Park, so from the mountain’s summit you can peer over old-growth forest, a lodgepole pine forest, lakes, and the Rosario Straight; on a clear day you can see as far as the skyline of Vancouver, B.C., as well.

The surrounding Moran State Park is a camping park with five freshwater lakes and over 30 miles of hiking trails. Summer hours for the park are 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and winter hours run from 8 a.m. to dusk. A day-use pay station is located at the summit next to the public restrooms for those who choose to drive and do not have a Washington Discovery Pass.
