A paved path leads to an emerald knoll with horizon-spanning views from snowy Olympus and Mount Baker to the azure waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Clogged in the sunny summer months with sauntering tourists, Hurricane Hill has helped introduce folks young and old, local and foreign, to the wonders and delights of the Olympic high country. But when winter spreads its white coat upon these open slopes, it’s a whole different adventure—a chance to snowshoe on high in the Olympic Mountains. This guide outlines the route for this trail during the summer, and another route for the winter. Dogs are prohibited.
