Words can't describe this great mountaintop. Views galore, easy hiking. May get crowded. Stop at the visitors center at the bottom to see what conditions will be at the top. Then, Just go.

We were not sure it would be worth driving up to Hurricane Ridge, but then saw a live stream at the Visitor Center that clearly showed that it was sunny up there, while down at the center it was almost drizzling and visibility was awful. So we drove up and we made it through the clouds and into the sun!... More

Nice views up top. There are a few trails that the Rangers can suggest. Within the visitor canter there are educational movies, snack bar, Ranger info, maps, and a gift shop. It is cold up here, so make sure you bring the proper gear if you plan to hike. I probably wouldn't drive back up there again unless I was... More

Driving up to Hurricane Ridge is part of the thrill. The beauty of this mountain is breathtaking. From the low lying clouds as you ascend to the open clear sky as you arrive to the top. Sno e capped mountains surround you and as I looked around I saw a family of deer walking leisurely and grazing just a short... More

My husband and I hiked Hurricane Hill a few days ago. It is paved, but some spots are rougher than others. The trail is 1.6 miles one-way and ascends 700 ft. There are many breathtaking views and the smell of fresh pine is wonderful.

This was our second trip to Hurricane Ridge - last one was 8 years ago. In both cases we landed on a sunny day in Sept. The views on these days were fabulous. Hiked the rim trail too and could easily see Victoria. It can get breezy and cold so bring layers and a hat. A hiking stick if venturing... More

The view of the Grand Tetons from the valley floor of Jackson Hole may be the most iconic mountain view in North America, but the view from the Visitor's Center area at Hurricane Ridge in Washington's Olympic Range is actually even more spectacular. Naturally you must choose a clear day (something you cannot always count on on the Olympic Peninsula),... More

Wow, Spectacular! Don't miss this amazing view. On a good day you can see for miles the beauty of the surrounding mountains and valley's. Deer came right up by us and hung around near the visitors center.
