Mount Finlayson Trail

Loop • 3.5 mi • 285 ft

Who said “War is hell”? Hell, if the Pig War never broke out we wouldn’t have been left with the longest stretch of public beach in the San Juan Islands and some great hiking trails to boot. Once the site of an American military encampment, San Juan Island National Historical Park’s American Camp offers plenty of natural splendors and historical relics. From Mount Finlayson, marvel at an undeveloped coastline spread out below you. Stare across the Strait of Juan de Fuca at a backdrop of snowy Olympic Mountain summits. Watch for eagles, plovers, sandpipers, and hawks. Enjoy one of the most spectacular settings in all of the San Juans.
