After a modest drive south and up from the city of Port Angeles, one arrives at the lodge. Be sure to check in advance as to when it is open/not! There's food available, a gift shop, and an overlook to a meadow, where at certain...More

A good scenic spot that's only 15 to 20mins walk from the parking lot. It's worth a climb! Just be careful and wear proper shoes as some of the sections are rather slippery due to snowfall.

We made this trip as part of a group from the Pacifick NW Region of the Porsche club. Great roads, great views. We didn't have time for hiking, but I can only assume that the hiking would be wonderful as well.

I finally saw Hurrican Ridge, my last trip to the area, this was closed due to road closure. Beautiful drive with awesome views. I was happy I had my ski hat, coat and gloves. So magnificent. I saw a family of deer.

Terrific views of majestic mountain ranges along most of the trail. Worth the 17-mile winding road up from the main visitor center.

This is a tough trail but well worth it. Views and cloud formations are stunning. Trail is well maintained but steep.

You are lucky if you go on a sunny day because you'll appreciate the sun's warmth on a crisp autumn morning. Jaw-dropping views wherever you turn, fresh air, deer wandering around, various hiking trails to suit your ability. It's all good. Visitor Centre is well-located...More
