Great views of the mountains and a perfect photo op. The center was just okay and I thought there would be lots more information available there, or at least more updated. The roads we took there get very windy so we made sure to have some lollipops on hand for the kids so they don't get too carsick.

Hurricane Ridge is a beautiful spot, even when the clouds are rolling in. There is a majesty in mountain peaks still snow covered in mid-July, and from Hurricane Ridge you can see a bunch of them. You do, however, have to get up and get down...and for some that may be an issue. A long (12+ mile) road winds up... More

This is a must visit when coming to the Olympic peninsula. The views are out of this world. There are few place where one can get up so high so fast and be right in the wilderness. Lots of easy walking trails right at the visitor center.

We loved our visit to Olympic National Park-Hurricane Ridge. The deer were so close. There was still snow end of June. The view were incredible, and the drive was beautiful as well. Enjoy the slow climb to the top. Lots of parking.

We had a beautiful trip up to Hurricane Ridge. We went early enough to beet the crowd. It seems to be a very popular place. We also hiked the trail to the Hurricane Hill. It was a pretty easy hike and the view were even better. We saw some mount goats too which the kids loved.

I had not really planned on going up to Hurricane Ridge. I am so glad I did. The road is very curvy and straight up. Totally worth it. It is cool so you should bring a jacket even in summer. The views are incredible. Deer walked through parking lot. You can see the glacier ad snow in July. V

You can take in the view from the parking lot or go to Hurricane Ridge trail, which I recommend. The trail is less than 2 miles one way. Three years ago I saw a marmot whistling. Last week I was able to see three mountain goats (and one baby) and a marmot sitting on a rock. Plenty of deer and... More

Online photographs don't do justice to the beauty of Hurricane Ridge. The view at the top, even on a cloudy day, is tremendous. The hiking trails are great, so plan for a couple of hours here. Deer are in abundance and mountain goat sightings are not uncommon.

And by that I mean not only the views, but the temperature. It was cold up there, Folks! Maybe I am a wimp, but I was grateful I had brought a lightweight fleece, which I layered with a waterproof windbreaker. It was a sunny day and this sufficed, but I could have used gloves, and this was in July. I... More
