Olympic National Park Map

As those have already stated, the trail head is a mile and a half from the visitor's center where you start when snowshoeing. It wasn't overly crowded. Stunning views on a beautiful day. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful waterfall, but this is not a actual trail. The falls are right off the road. Parking and bathroom facilities available.

Not a difficult hike at all. I did the 6 miles round trip, and it’s only 1k elevation change. The weather was amazing but they do call it hurricane ridge for a reason, it’s windy. Good amount of snow from the lodge to summit. Views are amazing, on a clear day, you can see Mt. Baker, Straight of Juan de Fuca, and awesome vistas from the Olympics. Highly recommend!!!

Not a hike, but pretty waterfall. It didn’t feel as spectacular as Marymere falls.

Feb 2018 - Inaccessible at the moment due to flooding in November that wiped out the trail and both campsites.

This was a challenging yet doable hike for a beginner snowshoer. Amazing views made it all worth it. Just note that it is a mile and a half from the visitor center to the trail head. We did 6 miles roundtrip. Also, the road to the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center was in good condition but only open Friday - Sunday in the winter 9am to 5pm. Best to get there early. We were waiting in line at the gate at 8:40am, got to the Visitor Center parking at 9:30. Started hiking at 10am and back to the car just before 2pm.

Peaceful! Not a lot of “traffic” on this gem. Haven’t gone to the top yet....

Was a tough one for me. Not a fan of switchbacks, but they are a necessary evil for this hike! The reward at the top is worth every painful step

Easy and beautiful

Very easy walk to see a waterfall. It is cool so you may want a jacket to keep warm. Bathrooms are available and it’s paved 90% of the way

A beginner hiker may get winded on the ascent but it is SO worth it when you get to the top. I would 100% do it again. Make sure you bring water and sunscreen. There’s very little tree coverage

beautiful mountains and view❤️

very short and I mean very but pretty if you are nearby.

Beautiful!!! First snow shoe ever on 12/31. The road up was fine in my Subaru crosstrek - however the line got long quick!! Be there at 9am or before! Started near the lodge past the sledding hill... toward hurricane hill. This is the most stunning view! Made it to the end of the “road” and turned back. Didn’t wanna push it to far on my first adventure. A great first place and incredible views !!!

Short walk in, but a beautiful waterfall!

Was good bag to hike it with h snowshoes but ended up using micro spikes. A beautiful hike.

Went back in September and this hike was one of my favorites. The views at the top were amazing. If it's a hot sunny day, make sure you bring extra water because the majority of the hike has little to no shade.


Deep snow, snowshoes would have helped. Views were spectacular. The drive was worth it. And I’ll definitely be bringing my snowboard with me next time. Tons to do.

This isn't really a hike but it is absolutely breathtaking. I did it Nov 1 and it was stunning with the leaves falling. I swear when I walked around the corner my heart skipped a beat.

Walked this in Early August, fabulous sunny day, clear to the horizons. Saw deer near the visitors center. Easy walk, amazing top of the word views.

Steeper than I had imagined and fairly open with little tree cover/shade. views of the opposite mountain ranges were great, and once at the top, you could see the Sound and Vancouver Island on a clear day. I found it interesting that the deer there are very social and meander among the hikers at the top, calmly munching on leaves and grasses. Keep a respectful distance and don't feed them. There are many social trails at the top, making it easy to take in the views from many angles.

Beautiful trail with stunning mountain views. There was still snow on the mountain tops in July 2017. The best part of the park and it was fairly kid and elderly friendly.

Worth it!

Beautiful views. Much of the path is paved. Not too long. Incline is challenging but not too difficult. Actually saw a ram near the top of the trail. Make sure to stop at the visitor center, go in the back and take in the view there as well. Great idea to take a picnic lunch to eat at the visitor center overlook.

Great views the entire time but it was pretty similar to the views you can get from the visitor center. I did see a lot of wildlife though and that made this trail worth it! We saw deer, marmots, blue grouse, chipmunks and plenty of birds of different colors and kinds.

Nice little uphill hike straight to the top! Beautiful all the way to the top and breath taking when you reach the top! Must do if you're in the area for sure

Amazing scenery.

Amazing views.

Cool springs. Not literally of course. One was too hot for me to put feet in. The others were a little cooler but the Sulfur smell was strong so I didn't anyways.
