- If you're looking for a dayhike along the ridgeline, the 2.6 mile crest is an ideal place to turnaround, as views change little but travel intensifies in both directions beyond this point.
- Grand Lake is another great option as a 7.6 mile out-and-back or basecamp for an overnight trip.
- For overnight trip options call the Wilderness Information Center (WIC) in Port Angeles: (360) 565-3100. They limit the number of people who can camp out here, so it's essential that you make reservations with them in advance.
From Port Angeles leave US 101 near milepost 249, following Race Street south 1.2 miles to Hurricane Ridge Road (Heart o' the Hills Parkway) and passing the Olympic National Park Visitors Center and Wilderness Information Center. In the summer, drive 17.5 miles to the Hurricane Ridge Visitors Center. Turn left down the dirt road immediately before the parking lot for the visitors center and continue another 8.5 miles to the trailhead.
