Deer Ridge Professional Review and Guide
"You can easily drive to Deer Park via a snaking gravel road from Port Angeles. But here are four good reasons to hike up to it instead. One: access, since the road is often closed until July. Two: profuse wildﬂowers, both in number and variety. Three: spectacular views of the entire Gray Wolf River valley and its towering peaks. And four: you’ll earn it all, something you simply can’t do from the seat of your SUV.
From the trailhead, bear right onto Deer Ridge Trail No. 846 and follow a decommissioned road-turned-trail for a short while. Then gently climb through a dry forest of Douglas-ﬁrs, layered with rhododendrons and carpeted by salal and kinnikinnick."
