The Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center is a great place to start. The visitor center is usually open when the road is open, with restrooms, exhibits, a park film, and a warming area. The foyer and restroom are always open.
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.
