Traveling by car from Port Angeles, the winding climbing road has many magnificent vistas. One occasionally spots a deer or bear. Beyond the major parking lot are picnic tables that overlook mountains and valleys. There are dirt and macadam walking paths.

When he Olympic Mountains snow capped fingers reach up into a brilliant blue sky, it is a heavenly site to behold. If the sky happens to be cloud-filled, the beauty is in the green. Tall confers and hanging moss quiet the surroundings and the rain cleans the atmosphere. Breathing the fresh air and viewing the mountains and walking the trails,... More

We drove up from a cloudy and overcast Port Angeles, through the clouds to a gorgeous sunny visitor centre. We hiked to the top of Hurricane Ridge, which seemed slightly further than the distance given in the guides, but it was well wo Ruth it for views across the park and back to Canada. The visitor centre had a very... More

The views from Hurricane Ridge are breathtaking. If you are new to the area, I recommend that you first stop at the Visitor's Center to get a map and tips on the trails and sights. The park is open all year, weather permitting but check beforehand, snow chains may be necessary in winter months. Every time I am in Sequim... More

Beautiful view but dress warmly. The temperature drops considerably once you hit the top of the mountain and the winds blow like the hurricane it's named for--but so invigorating! Be careful too not to slip on the patches of ice. Very cool place to visit!

There were deer crossing the street and the weather was perfect. There wasn't much to do except for the tourist center. No more words needed, just look at the pictures!

We visited in early September on a very cold, very wet and rainy day that was turning to snow. Good visitor center, just wish we had better weather. Weather didn't reallly allow us to take advantage of the views and hiking in the area, still definately worth the effort. The drive up is very nice.

This is a place to take out of town guests! It is majestic at every venue. Plenty of places to drive, walk, and hike. Dogs not allowed so leave them at home. Spectacular views at top and you need to be in fairly good shape for some of fun the hikes. Gift shop and information center near top. Allow for... More

I never tire of going to Hurricane Ridge. I've been going there since I was a kid and now I'm an old lady and I still love it. I always try to take visitors to this great part of the Olympic National Park. On a clear day you can see all the way to Victoria. We always see wild deer... More

We went in August and the wildflowers carpeted parts of the meadow. We were lucky enough to spot 2 fawns nestled in the grass, motionless, waiting for their mom to return. This was less than 100 yards from the parking lot. On a section of wooded trail, we spied a young male deer hiding in dense undercover, his burgeoning horns... More
