With its three campgrounds, shaded picnic area, paddleboat concession, and inviting beaches, Cascade Lake is the hub of outdoor activity in Orcas Island’s sprawling Moran State Park. And an attractive trail circling the lake makes this beautiful body of water a hiker’s favorite as well. While definitely one of the more popular hiking destinations within the 5200-acre park, opportunities for tranquility do exist at Cascade. Early mornings and evenings are quiet, with good prospects for observing wildlife, while winter casts an especially peaceful pall on the lake. Kids will love this hike no matter the time of year.
