Timber Lodge Orcas Island

Turtleback Mountain

This is my favorite hike on the island. When you’re standing on the deck of the lodge looking west, Turtleback Mountain is the long wide mountain directly in front of you. It offers a few different hiking options. My favorite is the hike from the southern entrance. Most of the pics here are all from that hike. The views are absolutely stunning, so be ready to snap some shots! Our 10 year old son even loves this hike as it’s about the perfect distance (roughly 3 miles) for a great family venture!
