You must visit! So much adventure. Wonderful for families with teens and young kids. Trails are well kept by the parks service. Rangers are kind and very helpful!

It is not too far from the main part of town and if you have never stopped by, you should. Pick up lots of brochures and maps for sightseeing tours plus displays of flora and fauna.

I went here for some information about trails to hike in the area and all of the volunteers and rangers were very helpful and friendly. They explained that area and pointed me in the right direction with maps.

We were there in the off season so the staffing was minimal but, so was the crowd. The ranger was very helpful as was the on-duty volunteer. They were very helpful in helping us make the most of our visit as this time of year, weather can be a limiting factor.

Nice switchback & good road up. Visitors Center has anything you need. Above it is Hurricane Hill Ridge, best views of the entire park. Worth the hike up. Loved Sunrise Pt./Heather Meadows wildlife all around.

Having only three days to explore this region, we wanted to make sure we visited the highligts. The ranger told us where to go, and what areas were closed either due to early snow or trail rstorations. We left with lots of maps, guides, and an accurate idea of how wee should spend our time on the Olympic peninsula.

Hurricane Ridge is a must-see and this Visitor Center is part of the park. There is a gift shop and ample seating and sitting places both inside and out. Summer tours are great. Could easily spend a hour in here learning the history, snacking or shopping.

While the road was open, the views were totally obscured by fog. The ranger in the visitor's center was very helpful and gave us many suggestions on what to do instead. If you are there, take the time to experience the short loop trail in the forest - stunningly beautiful.

Thank RdTripper_USA
