If you are on Orcas Island, you must take a drive up Mount Constitution. Absolutely breathtaking views over to the mainland and over Puget Sound. Depending on the day, you can see Mt.Baker, the Cascade range, Mt Rainier, and countless other things. The best view...More

The drive up to the summit of Mount Constitution (or the hike, if you have the time and legs) is well-worth the stunning views awaiting you at the top. From the base of the tower there are expansive views to the south, east, and north,...More

Drive, hike or bike...but go to see the incredible views. It is definitely worth it! Construction was going on to remodel bathrooms when we were there taking up some of the parking.

The tower isn't much to see, but the view from the top is awesome. You can see Mount Rainier and Vancouver, Canada from the top. This is the highest Point in the San Juan Islands at 2904 feet

This is definitely worth the trip up. Pretty easy winding drive to the top and you're rewarded by panoramic views extending far, far away. Must-do if you're staying or visiting the island.

From Friday Harbor you need to take the ferry to Orcas Island - apx 13 $, the inter-island I believe it's free. When you get to Orcas, you can hitchhike, yes it is legal and safe..I did it all summer
