Beautiful 4 mile loop around the lake. Easy for kids to hike...9, 7 & 4 year olds made it no problem. The 2 year old got half way. Green everywhere you look. Ferns, moss, mushrooms & lichen all over. Very tranquil and good for families, couples and trail runs. Some MTB with permit.

We visited the park through a horse back riding trip. It was just amazing. Very clean, the trails were well kept and so much very accessible to even the least hiking minded.

you can hike or drive to the viewing station at the top of Moran. We drove up and got to see Mt. Baker, in the Cascade Range, exposed. There is an enclosed viewing station the you can climb for more views.

Beautiful hiking trails for all hiking levels. Breathtaking views and warm lakes. The Kokanee and trout fishing is incredible. Lots of history in this 5000 + acre park designed for family camping.

We have been to this park before. The pine trees, moss and ferns make it beautiful rain or shine. This time we hiked Mountain Lake Trail to the Twin Lakes trail and back. It was about 2.6 miles round trip. An easy trail with a couple of hills and it hugs the lake shore. Very nice.

I've been up to Mount Constitution 3 times now and every time I find the view jaw dropping - I love the view out over the islands, Bellingham Bay and Vancouver. Worth the trip to Orcas Island all by itself!

The view from Constitution Tower was fabulous. Another visitor said we were lucky to have such a great view because of the regular clouds. We could see mountains all around us. It was sunset and so pretty. We also hiked the Cascade Falls trail and really enjoyed it.

This is another wonderful WA state park facility. It has easy accessible areas, view point at top of Mt Constitution, picnic areas on side of Cascade Lake as well as many more hiking trails, easy to difficult. We especially like the fact that you can take your dog ( on leash) on these trails. I suggest you purchase the state... More
