The view is what makes Hurricane Ridge a place you shouldn't miss. The visitors center is average. But, they do have clean washrooms.

This is a breath taking drive (and walk at the top), especially during weather - wind or rain. I was a solo driver post morning ice, so all I encountered was wind to the extent that I didn't get out and walk at the top. It was recommended to me to take the short walks and see the "backside" of... More

While on a fishing a trip a family member, which had been here before, suggested we drive up and see it. Certainly pleased that it was suggested! The drive up the winding road with fantastic views was great, but the arrival at the top was fantastic. The views were stunning to say the least. Wild deer roamed near the parking... More

Nicely built on the ridge with great views on the surroundings. Rangers give excellent information. There is a giftshop and you can buy food and drinks. You can also picnic outside on the decks.

After the windy drive up to Hurricane Ridge, it's essential to visit here, as the gift shop is reasonably priced. We bought 3 cotton t shirts along with lunch at a reasonable price.

Ranger gave us a great recommendation as the sky was overcast drizzling etc so is it worth going the 18 miles to the top of the ridge. Yes I'd go up and we did . Well worth it.
