I HIGHLY recommend Hurricane Ridge after a great experience this past weekend. Although the weather was quite chilly, the hikes, wild life, and flowers were outstanding! On several occassions we encountered deer along the trail. They are obviously comfortable with people because many of them were within 15 feet or so and continued to eat even after seeing us. Our pictures turned out great! We stopped in the visitor center in Port Angeles and again at Hurricane Ridge for hike suggestions. The people working at both visitor centers were very helpful.
Hurricane Ridge is definitely worth the drive or ferry trip coming from Seattle. We will certainly make a weekend trip to the north Olympics again soon.
