Lots of hiking options and a great viewing tower built by the CCC. Trails for all abilities from a few hundred feet to several thousand.

We spent the morning in this beautiful park. We unfortunately only had time for a few short hikes but made the most of our time. It seemed as though we pretty much had the park to ourselves--- it was so quiet and peaceful. We walked on the waterfalls trail which was really nice, then headed up Mount Constitution for some...

In addition to all of this state park's amenities for camping, swimming, kayaking and hiking, we were absolutely wow'd by the huge, old-growth forests and views of the San Juan's. We saved it for our last day on Orcas but I wish we had spent more time exploring the trails and lakes of the park. There is a day use... More

From the vantage point of Mt Constitution you can see Mt Baker, Blaine and all the Islands in between. One of the best thinks of our trip to Orcas Island.

This is one of the better state parks that has something for everyone, hiking, swimming, picnicking, kayaking. Take some time to walk the trails around the lakes and a must visit to the top of Mt. Constitution.

Moran State Park is among the most beautiful of all the state parks on the West Coast that I've visited. I was amazed by the lushness and density of the forest. It's a great place for a brisk hike or hours of quiet contemplation. If you make it to Orcas and have any appreciation of nature, it's a must visit.... More

We took a great hike around Mountain Lake. Our kids loved the view and appreciated the flat terrain. Great park.

We hiked many trails in this park over the long thanksgiving weekend. All were well maintained and clearly signed at intersections. The wind and cold that came thru on Friday resulted in a few blow downs that were passable on the cascade loop trail. But they closed the road to Mt Constitution at Mountain Lake. We met a ranger at... More

Moran State Park and Mt. Constitution are a must do while visiting Orcas Island! This was an absolute highlight during our vacation. Hiking around Mt. Constitution had absolutely stunning views and hiking trails. Also, the summit of Mt. Constitution is a great spot to grab a picnic table and have a snack/lunch. Parking is available, although I can imagine it... More
