My husband and I recently started snowshoeing and just finished our 2nd trip up to Hurricane Ridge. Fantastic snowshoe/x-country ski trails for every level of expertise, and you are never out of sight of a fantastic view.

Drove up hurricane ridge and then walked around the trails from the top. So quiet and serene! I had the feeling we were in the alps looking down at a chalet, as the visitor center there looks like an alpine lodge. Don't need much time to do some of the trails.

Nothing that you read about it will quite capture the full effect of how majestic this view is. You are standing right of what seems like a never-ending row of mountain upon mountain upon mountain in the distance. Haven't seen anything like it. There's a nice souvenir shop inside too.

Hurricane Ridge gives you a high mountain experience only minutes from the ocean. The views are spectacular and you can grab a bite to eat and have an invigorating hike on a nice day trip.

We experienced Hurricane Ridge with about 4 feet of snow on the ground on an absolutely stunning and sunny day. There were fantastic views at every turn and the trees were covered in a heavy blanket of snow. We followed the normal cross country or snow shoe trail without either because the snow was hard packed. We hike for about... More

Hurricane Ridge is located on the north side of Olympic National Park, just south of Port Angeles, and provides one with outstanding views of the Olympic Mountains and Port Angeles on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. It is one of the premier destinations within Olympic National Park and also one of the handful of fee areas of the park.... More

The vast and inaccessible interior of the mysterious Olympic National Park lies out all before you once you have gained Hurricane Ridge, following a tortuous 15-minute auto climb from just outside Port Angeles. Sprawled out before you are almost as many mountain peaks as there are stars in the night sky. Whatever the season you visit, they will very likely... More

I took my two boys 11 and 13 here for their first Snowboarding experience. I was amazed at how much snow as at the top of the mountain and how many people were there. The parking lot was somewhat dangerous due to the wintery conditions and blowing snow, plus there are no cleared sidewalks so everyone walks on the road.... More

Being from Washington state you kind of forget how beautiful things here are. I returned here to show the beauty to my wife who is from Pennsylvania and has never had the joy to see this scenic wonder. While there we saw various wildlife from deer to being within 20 feet of a mother bear with her cub. I highly... More

We did a family trip up to the ridge to see the snow scenes. This winter the snow has been close to normal. The views of trees plastered with fresh snow were spectacular, and the weather was bright and sunny on top. I'd been up to the ridge before in the winter, so I had the studded snow tires on... More
