The gravel road leading to the trail is narrow and very windy; going more than 20 mph for most of the drive is not recommended. It also gets extraordinarily foggy up there, so visibility is quite low. Not suitable for RVs or trailers. Deer Park Road is closed from October - June and trail cannot be accessed. Please note there may also be roadwork in the area. Please check park website or call for most up to date road and trail closures as this area is often closed well into June due to snow and other extreme conditions. For current status call (360)-565-3131

Great trail. Lovely views of the mountains, lakes...The drive is through un paved roads. Narrow in several places. Got to be very cautious.

We drove up around 7pm and the drive down was a bit tough especially the 8-mile unpaved road was dark after 8pm. The view is fantastic, you can see the blue mountains, the slopes down the mountains, ocean and clouds covering the surrounding. Highly recommended!

Had a friend from out of state visiting. This was a perfect place to take him to show him the beauty of the Olympics with a small time frame.

Sights at the top are amazing. Long and slightly scary gravel road on the way up. Lots of beautiful flowers and bees. Saw a bear in a distant meadow clearing and some curious chipmunks. Great views with very little work needed.

Very rewarding view for such a short walk. Trail is easy so all ages can do this one.

I suggest use caution while driving up to trailhead. Road is narrow but not many people goes here so it's not that bad. Just keep speed below 20. View is excellent. ... hurricane Ridge and city of Port Angeles with ocean view. I would recommend this trial

Contrary to the warnings of another reviewer, I had no problem at all driving to the trail head in my 4 cylinder Toyota. As long as you go in the summer months when you can avoid the snow, and your tires aren't bald, you should be fine. The road is narrow and very winding, so I wouldn't recommend going more than 20 mph for most of the drive. As for the trail itself, it's very short which was perfect for someone like me. I'm sure the views would have been spectacular had there not been cloud cover at the top. Unfortunately, I couldn't see more than a few yards out.

*****WARNING***** The road to this trail is an extremely narrow and windy dirt road so if you have a vehicle that is not capable of driving on this kind of road do NOT attempt to go to it. I didn't actually hike the trail because when I got there it was really foggy and the whole reason I went was to enjoy the view and take some photos which I couldn't do in those conditions.

Spectacular views of Hurricane Ridge, Port Angeles, and so much more. You are literally in the clouds. Easy hike and well worth the views.
