Hurricane Ridge is one of the highlights of Olympic National Park. We didn't do any hiking while we were up there but we could see the glaciers and there was a ranger outside talking about the glacier... more »
This place was pretty awesome to hike around in.
Way better than expected and the view was better than Mt Rainier. Easy hike for a family.
