Port Angeles Trailhead
Nov 2021
It as all Hurricane Ridge fault that I didn't complete Port Angeles Trail. Driving up to the top was so beautiful, even with the passing clouds. After arriving at the very top vision was reduced to 10 feet with all the cloud/fog cover. After I got out of my vehicle to stretch my legs this huge dear approached me as if he wanted something.
Largest dear I've seen until this day, After exploring Ridge I didn't realize Port Angeles Trailhead was near the entrance. After the discovery I jumped out the car and started my journey regardless of the Bear & Cougar signed. After making excellent time I was only half way there before it started getting dark. So I had to abandon my hike, so sad!!!

The drive up to Hurricane Ridge is a long windy road but worth the time. There is a 360 degree view and on a clear day you can see Canada. There are trails and places for people at all levels.

Great 360 views
Sep 2021
Views are spectacular! Easy drive up the mountain. Great welcome center with gift shop, bathrooms, and some food. 3 small hikes at the top peak with even better reviews then where you park. Overall glad we went up there! Oh and on a less cloudy day you can see the entire way to Canada!

AMAZING VIEWS
Aug 2021
Hurricane Ridge is AMAZING. Awesome views. Most of the trails are fully paved and easy walks and GREAT views. While the temperatures are relatively pleasant, the sun is bright and limited tree cover. You will want to wear sun tan lotion. This is a MUST SEE. There are some steep climbs, but very easy.

3 hours from Seattle via ferry

Olympic National Park has great mountain hiking trails inland. I also did the Cape Alava Hike about 6.2 miles round trip to the coast. From Seattle the park is about three or four hours away via ferry.

The View is Spectacular
Jul 2021
That's the best word I have for it. The 1.6 mile trail to Hurricane Hill is not easy, but it's worth the climb.

We were there in July. There were red, white, yellow, and bluish wildflowers everywhere.

Mountains and Marmots
Aug 2021
Amazing view of the Olympics. The mountains look so mountainy that it's like a depiction in an illustrated children's book. We saw several marmots up close eating various weeds around the parking lot. Got there around 10:30am on a Thursday and there was still parking. It's a pretty big lot- but I imagine weekends it may be more difficult.

If You Do 1 Hike in Olympic, go for Hurricane Hill Trail via Hurricane Ridge
Jul 2021
We spent a few days visiting Olympic National Park and came to Hurricane Ridge on Friday 7/30. The NPS website has a webcam which shows the weather at the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center.

There were 2 trails we did in the area:

Hurricane Hill Trail to Hurricane Ridge - this trail STARTS at the very small Hurricane Hill parking lot. I would say there are no more than 30 spots. We arrived at 9 am and literally squeezed ourselves into the last spot.

The trail is paved. It is 3.2 miles round trip with 826 feet elevation gain. We reached the top after 1 hour and 15 minutes and it is an uphill climb with very little shade. At the top, interestingly, I got a text welcoming me to Canada!

All throughout the trail, you are awarded spectacular views of Olympic National Park. By far, my favorite hike in the entire park. The views were AMAZING! We stopped for photos along the way. The entire hike took us 2 hours.

High Ridge Trail to Sunrise Point - this trail STARTS at the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center. It is .9 miles roundtrip loop. We started this trail around 11: 30 am and finished around noon. Again, it is very little shade at Sunrise Point and it gets hot.

Also, the Visitor Center has flushing toilets. At the time of visit, masks were required.
