- Summer: Daily
- Spring/Fall: Open Saturday & Sunday when Hurrican Ridge Road is open
- Winter: Weekends only for skiing at Hurricane Ridge
The Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center is a great place to start. Located just before the end of the road, stop here for brochures, maps, snacks, and suggestions to make the most of your stay.
(in bold) Visitor tip: purchase lunch and snack items from the deli in the visitor center gift shop and soak in the breathtaking views of the Olympic mountain range on the outdoor patio.
Hurricane Ridge has a number of hiking trails, from ridge top traverses to steep trails that descend to sub alpine lakes and valleys. Obstruction Point Road (weather and snow permitting, open from July 4 through October 15), branches off right before the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center, and provides access to a variety of trails as well.
During the winter months, snow enthusiasts enjoy the winter scenery, along with snowshoeing, skiing, cross-country skiing and sledding. During the spring, wildflowers cover the ground of the sub alpine meadows and black tail deer are often spotted grazing. Sunrise and sunset on a clear day provide magnificent panoramic views of the park.
