Trip Planner: USA / Washington State / Olympic National Park / Hurricane Ridge
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.

Choose a sunny day to visit, and views are totally rewarding. wheelchair accessible, drive all the way to the top possible in July, Aug. We were sceptical as we encountered the marine layer spreading, while we were driving up (3:30pm), but at the top it was clear day blue Sky spectacular view of cascade mountain peaks, deers grazing, soaking in the warmth very close to car parking. We took the ferry to Kingston from Seattle, visited lavender farm in sequim, and then drove up to hurricane ridge
Very scenic drive. Roads are extremely well maintained. There was some construction today that I believe runs through September. Slight delays close to the top as a one lane road was in place. Paved trails were lovely. Worth a trip.
