Hurricane Ridge takes real effort to get to in my opinion. I found it worth the effort, though I nearly froze. It is a magnificent view if it is at all a clear day. (This IS Washington.) Study the map and the distance first. And be sure you are prepared for it to be cooler than you expected.

We visited Olympic national park in August 2016. The weather was amazing, hot and nice blue skies. There were some wildfires at the time of our visit, but it didn't affect our stay. Driving Hurricane Ridge is obligatory when visiting Olympic NP. This 17 mile drive is so beautiful, with stunning views of the mountains. We stayed in Port Angeles... More

This was awesome! So many great photos. It was very windy & cold the day we were there. You can look out across the snow-capped mountains & at this altitude, you are ABOVE the clouds!! It was a great place to visit & with the howling/cold wind...I can see why it's called the Hurricane Ridge! LOL A must see!

We came through when there were some fires in Olympic, but it was a beautiful drive regardless. This entire area is so neat and different, would definitely recommend going up Hurricane Ridge- hike also if you have the time!

Absolutely beautiful! You can rent snow shoes for $17 ($22 if you want poles too) at the gift shop. The shop opens at 10:00am and the rentals must be back by 3:30pm. They have other winter equipment rentals too but I did not inquire about those prices. Also note that the road to Hurricane Ridge is only open Friday-Sunday in... More

The drive up to the ridge is a treat in itself, but do the stops on the way down. At the top there is a National Park visitors center. Go see the film. In mid-June the spring is just coming to the ridge, and so we got to see a variety of wildlife and spring flowers. Quite enjoyable and lovely

We snowshoed Hurricane Ridge about two weeks ago, I was 6 months pregnant at the time. We arrived early as many of the reviews had suggested, and we highly advise, so we could get our pass to get into the park and secure a parking space. Once you enter the park, its about a 30 minute drive to the parking... More

The views are worth the drive and hike! The parking lots get full, so get there early. Lots of activities available for the whole family.
