Description

Hurricane Ridge is the most easily accessed mountain area within Olympic National Park. In clear weather, fantastic views can be enjoyed throughout the year.

Life at Hurricane Ridge is shaped by wind and snow. Winds gusting over 75 miles an hour hammer the ridge, lending the name "Hurricane." The 30-35 feet of snow that falls annually lingers into summer, shaping life year-round. Its weight challenges trees; its persistence maintains open meadows. As you explore, look for evidence that snow truly sculpts this landscape.

On the Road: The road is open throughout summer. During the winter season, the road is scheduled to be open Friday through Sunday and holiday Mondays, weather and road conditions permitting. All vehicles must carry tire chains during the winter season. Check the road status before coming by calling (360)565-3131 (recorded message).
