Location: Hurricane Ridge, Port Angeles, Washington
Hurricane Ridge is most likely your first destination upon arriving in Port Angeles. At least, for us it was. We had to make our way to the Visitor Center in order to rent our bear canister and buy permits so we could camp out on the beaches for the next couple nights. The road leading to Hurricane Ridge is literally the same road the Visitor Center is located on so it was an easy decision as to what we would first on this trip.
At the top of the road there is a lodge which serves food and sells some goods, along with a Trailhead to a designated point (which we didn't take). The drive itself was awe-inspiring, the first time we really got to experience the Olympic Peninsula in all it's beautiful beautiful glory.
