5.0Hurricane Ridge(1.851 reviews) - Spectacular Views Spent More than 3 hours Points of Interest & Landmarks • Hiking Trails • Scenic Drives
At an elevation of 4,242 feet, Hurricane Ridge is one of the most easily accessible and scenic areas in Olympic National Park. Get a free map from the rangers at the National Park Visitor Center in Port Angeles, before making the scenic 18-mile drive up Hurricane Ridge Road. Here, you can spot Mount Olympus from the viewing patio next to the carpark, and embark on multiple trails like the Hurricane Hill Trail which has amazing views of the ridge. There’s snow up here until early fall, so travelers can have the chance to go tubing, snowboarding, or skiing, even in summer. You can join a guided tour of Olympic National Park to make sure you don't miss any of the best sights. – TripadvisorSee more..
One of the earlier stops on WA-14 (the views are great from the Washington side), just be aware that the pullout doesn't have much warning and parking is limited. However, the view is worth it so do make the stop.See more..
4.5Mountain Loop Highway(25 reviews) - Mountain Sights Spent More than 3 hours Mountains • Nature & Wildlife Areas • Scenic Drives
We have a cabin just outside Granite Falls so we visit this area many times each year. The road is paved part of the way and then extends further on a well preserved dirt road for 40+ miles. The Loop highway can be done in a day but there are so many interesting places to visit worth stopping at. The photo here was taken by the Ice Caves. The area is a Hikers Delight and worth many visits if you are staying long.See more..

Wowza. We drove here at sunset on a whim to see the basalt columns. Those were cool but super crowded, so we kept driving. I'm glad we did. If you go to the end, you'll be able to make it all the way to the river. Drive back has breathtaking views of the cliffs. Highly recommend!See more..
