Hiking Turtleback Mountain And Exploring South Sound On Orcas Island

Found two benches at the "West Overlook": one with beautiful views to the south, with the Olympic Mountains in the background, and one facing west towards Vancouver Island, could see Victoria in the distance. Continued on to Ship Peak, which had views to the east across Orcas Island.


PLEASE READ EVERYTHING:

I will not wait for sleepy-heads and leave at the above time. Please be engament free for the entire day and evening.

The trail is 3 miles round trip, well groomed and steep. Not recommended if you have knee or ankle problems.

We will visit Mount Constitution to see more beautiful sights and refresh in Sound Sound

I will update the departure information closer to the event date.  The ferry schedule changes for the fall/winter.

It will be an early rise and coming home about 9pm.

NOTE:  I have a NO Show and last minute cancellation policy for events like this. If you have 3 No shows and/or last minute cancellations, you won't be able to attend in the future

    I´m giving up on the knees note. I have been hiking with no knee problems, but I don´t want to strain them.

      good choice...it is to steep up or downhill and it would aggravate it.
