Wonderful trail. beautiful short hike through the forest.

The end of the trail and beginning are worth the hike

Great 7 MILE hike we just did it today (10/2/16). Made it to the shelter at the top right in time for the rain. The first mile or so was very mellow then we hit the first switch back and up up from there. Took us just under 2 hrs. To make it to the top. Worth it!

Beautiful drive, beautiful visitors center. Clear trail, but not clear directions. When entering the parking lot, go in either of the first two trail entrances heading towards Klahanne Ridge. Follow that to the right for a couple miles before a junction, turn towards the right to continue on Klahanne Ridge or go straight up for a steep hike before a small scrambling section to the top of Mt. Angeles.
Super cool and something for all skill!

Cadillac of trails on Hurricane Ridge .

Hiked about 6-7 miles out and back as we had to walk to the trail head due to roads being closed. Gorgeous path.

CLOSED FOR THE SEASON on the east end. We found this out the hard way. Apparently they've closed it in order to finish paving it.

About a mile is open on the Camp David side but we wanted more of a challenge. The trail status is here:

Lake Crescent is beautiful though, there's a nice picnic spot on East Beach.

If you're up for a decent workout with a view then this trail is perfect!

The drive to Obstruction Point is not as scary as the drive to Deer Park, but a close second. The views are great but you better have confidence in whoever is driving the car. The hikes at the end are awesome.

A nice relaxing hike with beautiful views of the mountains and Lake Crescent. We hiked the 4 mile unpaved section and then headed back. Only encountered a few mountain bikers.

This is not my favorite hike in Olympic National Park, but for the effort required the pay off is big in terms of scenery. Busy trail.

Beautiful hike from the get go. The beginning section which consists of a sliver of a trail around Obstruction Peak was a bit scary for some in our group.

I don't give many 5 stars. This is my first experience in Olympic so I might be quick to offer this up but the views are really something else. Quick easy trail just past the visitor center on hurricane ridge that you might find yourself hanging around on for several hours. It is in the rain shadow so a lot drier than coastal or in the cascades.

Views of the eastern ridges and the core of Olympic. I can't say enough how spectacular the views are. Seldom don't get a trail this open and expansive with the minimal effort required. The latter might be the only downfall as there are a lot of people and you will have some trouble with the solitude a place like this requires. All said, though, if you have a couple of hours to spare and just happen to be in the extreme northwest of the US you should do this hike.
