Hurricane Ridge has the most incredible views of Mount Olympus with the glaciers gleaming in the sun, or looking out over the Straits of Juan de Fuca over to Victoria, Canada. This place has everything an outdoor person would want, hiking, mountain biking from the...More

Just got back from Hurricane Ridge. It was a fairly clear day - so we thought. Paid the $15 admission fee and were driving up the mountain. Had a couple of near misses with some deer but that wasn't half of it. As we were...More

A good scenic spot that's only 15 to 20mins walk from the parking lot. It's worth a climb! Just be careful and wear proper shoes as some of the sections are rather slippery due to snowfall.

We made this trip as part of a group from the Pacifick NW Region of the Porsche club. Great roads, great views. We didn't have time for hiking, but I can only assume that the hiking would be wonderful as well.

I finally saw Hurrican Ridge, my last trip to the area, this was closed due to road closure. Beautiful drive with awesome views. I was happy I had my ski hat, coat and gloves. So magnificent. I saw a family of deer.

Terrific views of majestic mountain ranges along most of the trail. Worth the 17-mile winding road up from the main visitor center.

This is a tough trail but well worth it. Views and cloud formations are stunning. Trail is well maintained but steep.

You are lucky if you go on a sunny day because you'll appreciate the sun's warmth on a crisp autumn morning. Jaw-dropping views wherever you turn, fresh air, deer wandering around, various hiking trails to suit your ability. It's all good. Visitor Centre is well-located...More
