Hurricane Ridge

Hurricane Ridge Road, Olympic National Park, WA

At 5,242 feet, Hurricane Ridge offers the best introduction to Olympic’s scenic high country with a visitor center, kid-friendly trails, up-close wildlife views and stunning panoramas. We recommend the quarter- and half-mile Meadow Loop trails at the Visitor Center for 360-degree views and possible wildlife sightings, including mountain goats, black-tailed deer, marmots, grouse, and possibly bears in early summer. Hiking families can try the paved Hurricane Hill trail (3.2 miles roundtrip) or the 3.8-mile Klahhane Ridge trail. Both start from the parking lot. The Hurricane Ridge road is open daily from mid-May into October, and Friday through Sunday during winter, weather permitting. Call 800-833-6388 for off-season updates.
