Little Summit Trail

Just as Mount Constitution Road reaches the spine of the mountain you will find Little Summit and it’s accompanying trail head.  The Little Summit Trail starts at one of the best picnic vistas in Moran State Park and continues along the eastern side of the mountain towards the summit.  Several vantage points along the trail offer breathtaking views of eastern Orcas Island and Rosario Strait; perfect for photographs.  Take the mid-way cutoff towards Cold Springs Trail or continue towards the summit and see the whole of the San Juan Islands.

Bring plenty of water for the trail’s many ups and downs.  Catch a beautiful summer afternoon with all its blues and greens, or march into some cloud cover along the mountain and see a real abyss.
