My wife visited here this weekend. What a beautiful place in Washingtons Olympic Peninsula. The last time we were here was 25 years ago. It never seems to disappoint. After you drive up the 17 mile incline the road turns to the right to reveal...More

We took the hike of Hurricane Hill. The trail is about 3 miles roundtrip and well-paved. It was a very easy hike, though the sun was intensely hot and bright. The really warm weather brought the great view of the ridge and other mountains. We...More

There are literally 1000's of better view spots and hiking trails in Washington. The $20 motorcycle entrance fee is outrageous. They call it a 7 day pass but 99% of the visitors are there for a few of hours. The line to get in was...More

Visited this place during summer this year. What an amazing view near the visitor centre. A short track up the ridge will provide you with ample opportunity to snap many great photos. Do put on sun block if you're visiting this place summer.

The Hurricane ridge Visitor Center is the nicest within the park. If you have time, go at Sunset and walk the trail to the top of hurricane Ridge. It's steep but worth the climb. Make sure you leave time to hike down. Otherwise bring a...More

Nice to drive to the top of the ridge. Do not miss the ranger' talk and walk. They are really professional! That is a good opportunity to know the area!

A great way to see the top by driving up, then you can get an overview of the Park, as well as see the Juan de Fuca straight. There are paved walks at the top anyone can do, and some more challenging like to Hurricane...More

It's a windy road with just one lane in either direction and pretty steep slopes. It is better to leave your trailer at lake crescent lodge.

I think its doable as long as you start your day early. From Port Angeles to Hurricane ridge it is about 40mins depending on what day you are going. If you go on a weekend there might be traffic going up the Ridge since... More

I would not measure the distance from the parking lot to the "top" trails in miles. The distance is not far and the trails are good. The views and deer are amazing and worth the incline. My 1 year old grand daughter... More
