Hurricane Ridge, Olympic National Park
(4.9/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Ski and snowboard in winter or hike and camp in summer at Hurricane Ridge, a pristine site that affords all-encompassing views of the Pacific coastline. Sitting 1,598 m (5,242 ft) high in the mountains of Olympic National Park, in an intense wind zone, the ridge has unpredictable weather where it can snow any time of year. The drive along the ridge overlooks the Olympic mountain range with views of meadows and snow-capped peaks. Watch for wildlife here. Check the visitor center's information desk, which provides maps and tips regarding the park's facilities and regulations. A snack bar and restrooms are also available on-site.

  • Great place. Easy road. Nice hiking paths. You can see the enormous Olympic national park, see Canada. Visited it a couple of times. All ways great to be there.
