Guess this is where we call the America's Alps. We got pretty lucky to see the snow mountains under sunshine with several deer around, there's a short trail take you to the back of the mountain, come here in Spring there'll be flowers around and less crowded.

Absolutely fantastic experience despite the rain falling down on us. Ranger Josh was amazing, he had our children mesmerized the whole time and his knowledge of the area was great! Highly recommend this activity.

The vistas look like the backdrop to the Sound of Music! Hikes of varying lengths were well marked and not that difficult if you just pace yourself. There a nice gift shop with snacks and facilities at the base of all hikes.

I have been up to Hurricane Ridge more times than I can count. Go anytime the road is open! Check the Web Cam and call the ONP info line at 360-565-3131. Check the weather forecast. All this can also be achieved by stopping at the Visitor Center in Port Angeles. Before you go make sure you plan for enough time.... More

The drive up to Hurricane Ridge is beautiful, the road is a bit twisty & turny, you'll probably see a few deer. There are pull outs for viewing with the water & mountains in the distance. When you reach the top the view is beautiful, check out the visitor center, have a snack, walk around the front to enjoy the... More

I've seen an awful lot of the world, very heavy on the natural environment. Hurricane Ridge is equal to most of what this planet can offer up. Except for all the visitors, Hurricane Ridge is a drive that anyone who comes to the Peninsula should make. The drive itself is spectacular. You will see deer and perhaps a mountain goat.... More

At this time of year 7 years ago there was snow on this ridge. This time you could see the glacier but there was no snow. The ridge is an awesome site. At this time of year the visitors center is only open on the weekends. The views are wonderful and the drive up was spectacular.

Crisp mountain tops, gorgeous views, and a nice visitors center with information and a little gift shop. The day we went there were deer hanging out amongst the trails!

If you are moderately fit, do take the 1-1/2 mile hike up to the Ridge for a 360 degree view. If it's not clear, don't bother, however, winds can bring the clouds in and out. The trail is mostly paved, and the last section is a bit steep, but worth it.
