Be sure to drive past the Visitor's Center at Hurricane Ridge, about another mile to where the road dead ends to a parking lot. This short 3.2 mile trek begins with a steep ascent that begins at 5,105' and ends at 5,750 along a ridge line the winds through light forrest with ever increasing views of the Olympic Mountain Range. At the summit, you have amazing panoramic views with the Juan de Fuca straight on one site, and snowy mountains on the other.
