Local Forecast


Hurricane Ridge is right behind the first rank of mountains immediately south of Port Angeles. Follow the signs you’ll see as you come into town on Hwy. 101.


It is quite dark, with unimpeded views in several directions.

Spectacular views. Bring binoculars and a camera. There’s a nearby campground. The one night I spent up there not a single car came through after dark. There was a herd of deer that hung around the area all night. I could sometimes hear their hooves, click, click, click on the parking lot , then I’d turn and see them standing & watching me from 20’ or so. There’s a day lodge by the parking lot, locked and dark at night, with toilets & snack bar. I don’t know if the toilets are locked after dark.

Thanks to Mike for suggesting the site and providing the site description!
