We had to wait 1 hour just to get into the park. They are repaving the road. They only let 20 or so cars in with a pilot car at a time. Then you have to wait another 20 minutes before they take the next 20. We noticed that when we left in the afternoon the line was much shorter... More

Visited Olympic National Park as part of our 16 day cross country road trip from Seattle to Boston. Went to Hurricane Ridge, Lake Crescent, Kalaloch Beach, and Quinault Rainforest. Took approximately 5 hours to drive through the park with several stops. Hurricane Ridge was my first and favorite stop in the park. The mountains were very beautiful, they looked like... More

Truly one of those sights in our National Parks that give you that Wow moment. Just gorgeous views. We could have been in the Swiss Alps. Lush forested mountains with deer walking all around. The drive up to the top was pretty easy too. Really lucky to have experienced this gorgeous place.

One of the most beautiful hikes you'll ever take!! This one isn't for the faint of heart but kids can make it & you don't have to be a hard core hiker. The views are breathtakingly gorgeous and you're likely to see plenty of wildlife along the way!! Just remember to respect the wilderness!! We didn't want to come back... More

Everything about visiting Hurricane Ridge was beautiful. Several places to stop on way up for photos and we even saw some deer on the drive up. Once we were at the top we hiked the loop to the upper ridge. Once up there you can see the ocean and into Canada. There's a lot more hiking you can do if... More

Pretty much the whole trail has stunning views of the mountains. When you get to the top there are also amazing views of the water and Canada. It is a steep walk though, I felt very accomplished when I made it to the top. If you are lucky you will see animals. We saw deer, goats, and malmot.

There's a reason this is ranked number one on this site. It's has beautiful hiking, beautiful views, and wildlife. The views from the top were slightly obstructed by low clouds when we were there, but it was still amazing to see some of the peaks of the Olympic Mountains. The drive up was deceptive, as there were parts that were... More

Going anywhere in the Olympic National Park is so worthwhile but I believe Hurricane Ridge is not to be missed. The views of the Olympic Mountains are fantastic and the animals amazing. I love the wildflowers as well.

What can I say, this is a spectacular spot that hikers and car tourists can all enjoy, the lodge is great, sit down and watch the movie on a rainy day, otherwise, hike, ski, enjoy nature at its best.
