Mount Constitution Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Why drive to the highest summit in the San Juan Islands when you can hike to it instead. Trek through windblown pines along precipitous ledges to Mount Constitution’s open summit. Then climb its stone tower, savoring stunning views of emerald islands sparkling in the Salish Sea, all against a backdrop of snowcapped peaks from Garibaldi to Rainier. You’ll hike past three lakes too, on this invigorating loop.

Locate the Little Summit Trail near a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) shelter by the group camp entrance. Then prepare to break a sweat, climbing steeply and with a purpose. Briefly skirt the Mount Constitution Road and continue relentlessly upward."

"Hike to the rooftop of the San Juan Islands on a glorious loop through a grand state park. Wander past three lakes and through windblown pines along precipitous ledges. And climb Mount Constitution’s historic stone tower, savoring stunning views of scores of emerald islands in the sparkling Salish Sea, against a backdrop of snowcapped peaks from Garibaldi to Rainier. The park contains more than 30 miles of trails and old-growth forest, several lakes, and the San Juan Islands' highest summit, 2409-foot Mount Constitution. This loop captures the essence of this park." Read more
