We've been to Olympic National Park a couple of times and find it fabulous each time. Hurricane Ridge is one of the most popular features of the park and it gets very crowded in the summer months -- be sure to go early, or you...More

We travelled up to Hurricane Ridge after spending an hour walking around Port Angeles on a misty, drizzly Sunday morning. We initially stopped off at the 'Olympic National Park' sign, then drove on the designated road which does stop at a pay booth ($30). They...More

We did the Overlook, Cirque Rim & Big Meadow Loop and Hurricane Ridge Trail, the latter being a bit of a work-out but oh so rewarding. Fabulous mountain views. Saw a lot of squirrels and chipmunks. Expect a little mist and wind at the top....More
