This is a high-payoff run in many ways. The views are incredible, the trail is well maintained, and the route is almost entirely runnable. Hurricane Hill seems to be at the top of the world, putting you face to face with the highest peaks in the Olympics. You can see from Canada, just across the water to the north, to the mountain peaks of Oregon to the south, and the wildflowers bloom continuously from spring through summer. This is a trail with options for family members. The Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center has more than a mile of groomed trail. The first mile of this run is also on a paved “tourist” trail. Your family or friends can come up to Hurricane Hill with you, do the trails across from the visitor center, then meet you at the Elwha Ranger Station. Please note that the Olympic National Forest is a wilderness and there is always the possibility of encountering bears, cougars, and other wildlife.
