The view will leave you breathless!! Grab your camera and see some amazing views on hurricane ridge. The ride from the visitor center will take about 45 minutes and is full of sharp turns and takes some time but be patient, I can assure you it is worth it. There is a snack/gift shop on the top along with restrooms... More

The drive to Hurricane Ridge was beautiful. Once you arrive, you'll find the views breathtaking. If you're a shutterbug, you won't be disappointed. It's a lovely, tranquil place to be.

The drive is beautiful, the mountains are beautiful, the trees are beautiful...it's all beautiful. They say to have chains, but we didn't and luckily didn't need them. It's $15 per vehicle and totally worth it. There are several pull-off spots along the way to take pictures. We were already in awe at the first stop, so imagine when we got... More

This place is totally worth the drive up the mountain and is one of the most breathtaking places I have ever visited. There were only tiny patches of snow on the slope next to the easy path up the ridge, a very unusually warm and snowless February. You can stay until the sun dips down behind the trees near the...

So gorgeous, especially when you look back and see you are above the clouds. Beautiful mountains and nice visitor center at the top and bottom. The park website says you must have tire chains in your car in the winter, but since WA has had virtually no snowfall this winter, there was no need for them. We had them in... More

Drove up this weekend to see what we could see. Unfortunately the weather has not cooperated and there is not a lot of snow at the visitor center. However the views from the visitor center and the parking areas along the way up on the drive are awesome. There is a small snack bar and give shop on the lower... More

Wow! This was one of the highlights of our trip to the Pacific Northwest. The views at the top were absolutely spectacular! Definitely worth the drive up, though our tiny rental car wasn't too happy;) On our first attempt up the ridge, it was so foggy we could hardly see anything- it was actually a little eerie, with no one...

The hike is quick and easy, maybe 20 minutes and kids and elderly guests will do fine. You'll be surprised at how long the drive up to the visitor center is. The deer are fed far too much, making them a curious part of the attraction. Fantastic view.
