Olympic National Park Map

Found a pair of glasses on my way down from this hike today (3/15/18). anyone lose a pair? they are thin lenses and a pretty strong prescription!

Gorgeous trail! We did this on a sunny day in March and it was perfect, plenty of traffic but not enough that it felt crowded

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!!!

Man, it was cold!! Stayed at Five Mile Island for a couple nights. Really loved this campsite- open space, outhouse available, didn't see bear ropes for food tho but could have missed it, right next to the river, lots of flat camping options. Ran into a herd of about 30 Elk. Attempted to continue on the trail but the snow became more dense - highly encourage micro spikes for this. Decided suffering through the cold (even though my sleeping bag is 20 degrees and I was wearing 4 layers) wasn't very fun. Will definitely attempt to reach the glacier at another time.

Nice short hike with 2 cool bridges to cross. Water is crystal clear.

this one is fairly easy,pretty but also very beautiful to see all the green and the water, fresh water at that. I've taken my granddaughter up there she's 6 months old it was just beautiful and didn't take very long

beautiful scenery year-round. i highly recommend a visit in mid Autumn though for the myriad of colors and depth throughout the trail.

Beautiful sights. There are a few trails that seemingly intersect, so starting on one may wind up on another.

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

Had to maneuver the washout area (will get your feet wet). Came upon a herd of elk walking up the road to the trailhead. North side of loop was closed due to a bridge washout. No warning signs at trailhead.

Beautiful! Super nice and easy!!

Beautiful hike. One of the better ones I've done. Make sure to bring snow gear and do the winter pass (right at the fork).

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.

Great hike! enjoyed the falls and moss filled landscape!

Nice one for the family! Rewarded with a beautiful waterfall!

Hey! I am headed up to hike this weekend with my girlfriend. We have snowshoes and crampons and intend to start the hike very early (5:30am) in order to summit in one day. As we only have a car, not an SUV we were hoping someone who has been recently could please fill me in on the road conditions getting up there and if our plan to summit sounds do able. Thank you!

Easy and beautiful

Tried to snowshoe up Mt. Ellinor a few days ago, and while the hike was enjoyable, we wanted to pass on a few warnings. The road to the lower (and also the upper) trailhead is completely snowed out about .8 miles away from the lower trailhead. This is good to know because it'll add that much more time to your hike. I'll also add that snowshoeing through the deep rutted out road for .8 miles was the hardest part of our hike.

Because of our slight delay at the beginning of the hike we ran out of daylight and were unable to fully summit the mountain. We made it to the second junction for the upper trailhead and that was a lot of fun. Watch out for trees dropping enormous amounts of snow, they sound like they could do damage. Also, at the first junction for the upper trailhead, make sure to head up and to the left towards higher ground. There have been some snowshoe tracks continuing straight from the junction and that is not a trail. Look for orange snomobile markers on the trees. If you haven't seen one in 6 or 7 trees you aren't on the trail.

Happy hiking!

Very easy walk around an incredible environment

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❤️

pretty falls but very short hike. sign says 1.5 hrs. It took us a half hour roundtrip.

Beautiful hike. Very accessible, easy going but nevertheless transports you to a different planet. More of a nature-walk than hike.

Pleasant walk in a lovely, lush, green forest. Definitely worth a visit, and it doesn't take very long at all.

Due to time constraints, we only hiked the first four miles to the Grover of Large Cedar. Loved this hike, and intend to return to hike the full trail!
