Hiked to the good views

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.

Our family went snowshoeing at Hurricane Ridge. Lots of fun. Beautiful views and a variety of trails to choose from. Road is only plowed Friday thru Sunday in winter. And the parking lot can fill up by mid morning. So arrive early or have a backup plan. Check with the ranger station for current info.

In June we still saw a little bit of snow on the mountain, it is definitely a long way up for us flat landers. We saw several deer on the mountainside. Great views! Dress warmly in layers.

As you drive up the last bit of the road to Hurricane Ridge and round the last bend if you are fortunate to arrive on a clear day you will have a breathtaking moment as all the peaks and valleys will be out in all their splendor. Take time to visit Hurricane Ridge and hike and enjoy the vistas and... More

Panoramic views of distant mountains makes your day. We completed the Hurricane trail and could see Canada from the top of the mountain. Certain stretches of hike can be little steep but you will get a good footing on the trailpath. We saw few deers on one of the grass fields.

Absolutely beautiful! National park fee is required, I believe it was around $20. Takes about 20 min. to get to the observation area at the top. Multiple opportunities for hikes and look out areas. Beware that due to elevation chains and or snow tires could be required, you will not be allowed to enter without.

The pictures say it all. It was a great day for sight seeing. Heavy snow on the tree,. Blue sky with a few clouds and amazing views. The weather was clear and sunny which is unusual for January.

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
