Incredible scenery throughout the park, great views along the ridge, deer alongside the road, snow to play in (even in May!--it snowed while we were ascending, and then stopped, but enough had fallen in a short amount of time that we could have a little snowball fight in one of the big fields!). Awesome day in a beautiful park. The... More

Wonderful drive up, although this trip we went right after a major snow. Even though we did not see the view from the very top, the other view points were spectacular.

The personal were welcoming and well infomed about the area. You can get passes to the park here. The center is full of displays and quality merchandise to buy about the Olympic National Park. There is no fee for you to enter the visitor center and wander around looking at displays. You really should visit the Olympic National Park Visitor... More

First allow plenty of time to just be in this awesome place. Take in the air, feel it on your skin. Now, get yourself off any concrete or pavement and walk among the forest trees and ferns. How does the ground feel? This is a difficult place to describe, more like experience. So, I will just say - Go and... More

The staff are very knowledgeable and able to make valid suggestions to make your park experience great. This is also where you register for hikes, get bear cans, and books and park souvenirs. There is a short hike on the... More

The Visitor Center is one small building as you start to drive up towards Hurricane Ridge. It is not inside the park boundary, so there is no entrance fee for going to the visitor center. This is a very good place to get oriented, talk with a ranger, browse a well-stocked and nicely supplied gift shop, and plan various trips... More
