An easy (I'm in mountaineer shape) loop in the Moran state park plus the Little Summit - nothing like a two-for-one deal! The tower at the top is a nice endpoint where you can see Mount Baker, the surrounding San Juan Islands, and the Olympics (at least if the haze from the fires were gone).

Be aware that there are stinging nettles on the trail - I hiked in shorts and brushed into it fairly early in the hike. My shins still feel tingly,

Once done, Orcas provides a general store and a few shops with some decent after hike food - great for when you are waiting for the ferry!

Climbed to Little Summit after completing a Mount Constitution summit - it's only an extra 0.5 miles off of the main loop.

Great views all over. Busy place in the summer. Good places to jump off rocks into the water as well. P.s. Don't touch the snail shells, they stink.

Well kept. great hike with kids.
