Most of the trails at Moran State Park are closed to mountain bikers during the year except from September 15 to May 15. Trails are multi-use and open to travel in both directions.

The summit of Mt. Constitution is 19 miles away from the ferry landing, so shuttling is the preferred method for biking in the park. A Discover Pass is required for every vehicle that enters the park is equipped with an automated pay station.

Description

This trail is open to mountain bikers from September 15 to May 15 each year.

On a clear day the Little Summit Trail offers spectacular views of the Sound and beyond. When you're not navigating a few small outcroppings of rock the trail travels through moss covered lodgepole pine forests.

This trail is very well benched and has minimal tech, though you'll come across a little bit of exposure. It's easy to get cruising in sections, but a few abrupt corners and the probability of hikers would recommend keeping your speed reigned in. About halfway down, the trail intersects with the Cold Springs Trail, which will head to the right.

This craggy little outcropping can be a bit awkward, but the view on a clear day more than makes up for it if you don't clean it.

Three months after prostate surgery and two days before my 49th birthday. Feeling proud of climbing Mt Constitution (2,400').
