Whether you visit the park for a few hours, a day or several days there is plenty to see and do. A 45-minute drive from Port Angeles to Hurricane Ridge brings you from the lowlands blanketed with old growth forests to treeline, where clumps of subalpine firs give way to open meadows. On a clear day, views of the Olympic Mountains and Strait of Juan de Fuca are spectacular.
922,000 acres, Olympic offers endless possibilities for recreation, sightseeing, study, and relaxation. Whether it’s hiking for miles through the high-country, enjoying a picnic, cross-country skiing at Hurricane Ridge, or strolling on a beach or nature trail, no matter what the season, there are numerous opportunities to experience and explore Olympic National Park.
