Klahhane Ridge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Klahhane Ridge towers over Hurricane Ridge Road, providing outstanding
views of Mount Angeles and the long sweep of Hurricane Ridge. The trail
climbs steeply, but once the work is done, snowshoers can trek along the
long ridge stretching between Mount Angeles and Rocky Peak."
--Dan A. Nelson, Snowshoe Routes: Washington (The Mountaineers Books).
"Of the four ways to reach the rugged, rocky, and wide-open Klahhane Ridge, the Switchback Trail is the shortest. Ascending 1400 feet in 1.5 miles, this direct approach wastes no time ruthlessly reaching the high ridge crest. This south-facing ascent guarantees an early-season entry into the high country but also exposes you to plenty of direct sunlight. Pack extra water and sunscreen. And don’t forget to stop and smell the ﬂowers—they’re profuse.
Mountain goats frequent this area too, especially the ridge’s high crags. Dogs are prohibited."
--Craig Romano, Day Hiking: Olympic Peninsula - 2nd Edition (The Mountaineers Books).
