Great views from all around the visitor's center, but go inside to find out from the helpful staff which of the trails have alternate great views. The gift shop staff were also helpful. We also found out there was a very pleasant picnic area further down and took advantage of that as well.

It's over seventeen miles of highway to get to the top and the visitor center but there are a few turnoffs on the way to stop and start to appreciate the view.

This was a great visitor's center at an amazing section of Olympic National Park. Hurricane Ridge is just south of Port Angeles. Surrounded by mountains, the view from the visitor's center was amazing! Patio surrounding the center has viewing benches, picnic tables, and telescopes. Very friendly staff, nice gift shop. 2 hikes go out from the center--Big Meadow, which is... More

This was the only visitor center that we went into in Olympic and it is situated right on the edge of the mountain. The view out the window is very impressive and the maps and information inside are great. We did buy some postcards and stickers in the center and they do have a snack area where you can get...
