Very clean building, with many exhibits that show the wildlife and the mountain range. Helpful ranger at the help desk, and very knowledgeable ranger for the free tour. We saw several deers!

A visit to this well maintained visitor center shall be ideal and informative. We shall get required info and ideas, before we start a visit to the Olympic national park .Tis is the first entry point to the Olympic national park, while travelling from Port Angels. We can also stamp our national parks pass ports .

Do not forget to go to Hurricane Ridge. The drive is gorgeous and the views of not only Olympic National Park, but of the strait of Juan de Fuca and Vancouver Island are terrific.Great easy access to pleasant hiking trails. Olympic National Park is very user friendly, which makes a visit all that more special.

Probably a very informative place but we just needed a map to find our destination. Located right off the highway. Very easy to access.

Driving the road up on the bike was great. The view at the top was a typical glacier mountain scene. Be aware that there is a charge to access the site. Nothing is free anymore.

For hikers, do hurricane ridge, one of my favorite trails and the Hoh Valley trail. If you can visit the Hurricane ridge visitor center at night in the summer, the stars are amazing on a moonless night. And sometimes an astronomer will show up with his telescope

Hurricane Ridge is a must see location to see some of the high peaks. Weather is unpredictable with cloudy summits, sunny skies with fog at lower elevations, windy, calm but always something wonderful. See local deer and Olympic marmots in the alpine meadows.
