the world's most spectacular roads

 

Mount Constitution is a mountain pass at an elevation of 2,399 ft (731 m) above the sea level, located on Orcas Island, in the northwestern corner of Washington state in San Juan County, Washington, USA.

Mount Constitution Road is 4.6 miles long. The surface of the road is asphalted and includes several bridges. Atop the 2,409-foot-high Mt. Constitution there stands a stone observation tower built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1936. The tower features a commanding 360° views and offers panoramic views of surrounding San Juan Islands, Bellingham, the Cascade Mountains, Mount Baker, Mount Rainier, Anacortes, and Port Townsend, and a variety of Canadian and American cities.

 

The drive is definitely worth it. Don’t forget your camera! The summit of Mount Constitution on Orcas Island is the highest point in the San Juan Islands. The road's winding design, providing stunning panoramic views, is very curvy and fun for a leisurely ride, so it pays to take it slow. There are no snack bars, restaurants, or any other services at the summit so prepare accordingly. The paved narrow road to the summit is closed in the evenings. Starting from Moran State Park, the ascent is 6.37 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 547 heightmeters. The average percentage is 8.5 %.
