  • A MUST visit. Lots of friendly hiking trails, waterfalls, and vistas. Not able or willing to to hike far? The summit is nearly accessible by vehicle. Just a short walk up to an amazing view! Want some good exercise? Many trails to choose from. Limited parking. Discover pass required.
  • Beautiful park. Cascade Lake has some great trout fishing. We have camped at Midway campground multiple times now and have loved it each time.
  • Great park, the hiking is wonderful. Mt Constitution, Mountain Lake, Cascade Lake, are all good hikes. Mountain Biking Sept.15 to May 15 can be excellent. Travel there is problematic, ferry reservations required especially to get off the island on a Sunday.
  • What a beautiful park. Visited on a Friday morning and there were very few others there. We didn't have much time to spend so we drove to the top of Mt. Constitution for the overlook. Sadly, the tower was closed for renovations but we still had great views from the ground. Also, don't be fooled by the short distance of this drive; the steep, curvy road takes a while to ascend (and descend). We also hiked the trails near Cascade Falls, which were short and easy, and the series of waterfalls were spectacular. We couldn't get over how much this wooded area looked like some place dinosaurs would roam.
  • This was a great family camping trip and we enjoyed easy access to the lake, and the trip up to the lookout. My main issue was our campsite (and a lot of the others) are right next to a busy road that runs through the campground with fairly frequent and fast traffic.
