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. – Tripadvisor

The weather is so unpredictable here, even in the summer. We lucked out, warm, clear skies! Lots of hiking on paved and well-maintained gravel trails. Lots of wildlife. The park rangers do a great job. There's construction happening at the HR visitor's center, but you can still drive through to Hurricane Hill trailhead. Because of the crowds and Covid, I recommend visiting in the morning, and on a weekday if you can. We arrived Friday @11 and the lot at the visitor's center was almost full.

One of the highlights at Olympic National Park. We did the hurricane hill trail which provides excellent views of the ridge. The trail is uphill but is completely paved so it's not too difficult. There are amazing views of the ridge and on a clear day you can see the city of Port Angeles and beyond that to Canada. There are also marmots and deer you can spot along the trail.
