The view of the Olympic Mountain Range is unreal. Very nice visitor center explains all well. Drive is beautiful, breathtaking and steep. Only negative is Gift shop was closed.

Great views and easy hiking trails. The drive is fairly steady climb. The only down side is that the café in the lodge was expensive.

Hurricane Ridge will not disappoint if you like snow capped mountain views. There are some excellent trails at the top visitor center and the drive up is very nice as well. If you are fairly fit, actually quite fit, don't miss the switchback trail about half way up the main road; this trail climbs 1600 feet in 1.5 miles and... More

Hurricane Ridge is breathtaking, and the scenery on the drive up to the top was beautiful! It was pretty cloudy with a light mist when we were there. Check the weather conditions before you visit Hurricane Ridge, and try to go when it is not too cloudy. The drive from the Visitor's Center takes about 45 minutes, and the roads... More

The road up to Hurricane Ridge is a lovely drive. The pavement is smooth and the lanes are adequately wide. We saw some deer alongside the road. About a third of the way up, there is a *viewpoint* that is almost as interesting as the top of the mountain. We didn't notice if it had a name, but there is... More

A place to rejuvenate your soul, that's Hurricane Ridge. We drove up on a gorgeous sunny day and could see for miles. This place never disappoints. We took a friend of ours there who had never seen snow and we found a small batch for him to play in, he made a snowball and a tiny snowman, but it is... More

The kids where in awe. They tried to tell me the old cliffhanger hanger move was filed here. They wanted to go climbing the mountains. I tried to tell them that they can not do the trail behind the lodge, which I was right. Great place and the site will be etched in your mind permanently as one of the... More

Absolutely fantastic! Caught a clear, sunny day and could see for miles. Plenty of parking and nice ranger station and café there. Lots of deer wandering up close.
