Dispersed off the coast of Washington equidistant between the metropolises of Seattle and Vancouver, Canada in scenic Puget Sound, the horseshoe shaped Orcas Island is the largest of the San Juan islands. Catch the ferry that departs from Anacortes, 80 miles north of Seattle, and explore the charming waterfront villages, verdant forests and mirror-like lakes that constitute the island’s 57 square miles. Orcas Island's biggest draw is Moran State Park, where its more than 30 miles of forested trails pave the path to the summit of Mount Constitution, Orcas Island's highest point of 2409 feet that commands a view over the Salish Sea and snow dusted peaks of Mount Baker. The island’s craggy shorelines and hilly roads that weave between its natural landscape and historic villages present endless outdoor possibilities for adventurous hikers and bikers. Eastsound is Orcas Island’s hub for culture and art, a modest collection of galleries that celebrate the paintings, handcrafted jewelry and delicate ceramics of local artists.
