Very nice hike to Hurricane Ridge with incredible views across into Canada. Moderately challenging for day hikers/kids. Wish we had more time to spend in park.

As usual the rangers are very knowledgeable and helpful. It's a large visors centre with picnic areas and restrooms.The Olympic NP is a beautiful and stunning area to visit. The drive alone to the visitors centre is fabulous.

A must visit and must hike location. Once in a lifetime experience. The drive is long but very scenic and well worth the trip. Leave early. Stop in Forks to buy food from the amazing Thriftway deli.

We needed info about Hurricane Ridge and hikes around the area and they were very helpful. They also recommended other areas for us to check out for our limited weekend stay.

Travelling up the Olympic Peninsula was like going back in time. Port Townsend was a beautiful Victorian town, lovely to visit. Hurricane Ridge and the walk with the ranger was great and the walks to the waterfalls were amazing.

This is a very large park that has different types of terrain and climate. Must see is Hoh Rain Forest, Rialto Beach, Hurricane Ridge. It has nice visitor centers and great hiking trails from easy to challenging. We had a great three days exploring everything.
