Hurricane Ridge

June 14 | Multiple Departure Locations
Enjoy a trip up to Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park. Rated number six of the 74 roads listed in the Destination Highways Washington book, the 17.1 mile Port Angeles to Hurricane Ridge is 30.0 of 30.0 on their Twistiness rating. And the scenery isn't bad either.

Tacoma Central-to-Fat Smitty's (map)
8:15 departure from Bertolino's Coffee in the Tacoma Central Shopping Center (map). Continue on Hwy 16 with a stop for coffee at McDonald's (map) and meet-up with those in the Kitsap Peninsula area before continuing on Hwy 104 and the Hood Can to Fat Smitty's. Depart from McDonald's at 9:00.

Olympia-to-Fat Smitty's
8:15 departure from 902 Union Ave (map), taking Hwy 101 up the Hood Canal Bridge to Fat Smitty's.

We will take the Twisted Edges road (TE-A) to Port Angeles, stopping at Safeway for lunch items (or bring your own lunch) for our stop at Hurricane Ridge.

Time permitting, after heading back down Hurricane Ridge, we may stop at the Harbinger and/or Olympic Cellars wineries before heading home.

Unless you're going to put them under the bonnet to keep warm, they might get a little cold (and soggy) before we stop for lunch. We're planning to take the back roads to Dungeness Spit and stopping at Safeway for lunch stuff before heading up to the 'Ridge'.

Thanks for the heads-up.

That was a fun trip and seeing more of Sequim than I had previously was a bonus.

A few photos of the Crise to Hurricane Ridge

What a great day, weather could not have been better and met new friends and saw some old ones.
