Hurricane Ridge In Winter
During the winter season, the Hurricane Ridge Road is open Friday through Sunday (and holiday Mondays), weather and road conditions permitting from November 15 through April 1.
All vehicles, including four-wheel drive vehicles, must carry tire chains when traveling above the Heart O’the Hills entrance station between November 15 and April 1.
Winter storms can close or delay opening of the Hurricane Ridge Road; high winds and blizzard conditions are not uncommon. Hurricane Ridge is well-named and despite our best efforts to keep the road cleared and open, severe weather can force a road closure or delayed openings.
Road and weather condition updates are posted on the Olympic National Park website (www.nps.gov/olym)
or by calling the park’s Road and Weather Hotline at (360) 565-3131 .
People can also follow “HRWinterAccess” on Twitter to receive road condition updates.
The Hurricane Ridge Road may also close temporarily if the parking lot becomes completely full. To make best use of the available parking spaces, park staff urges Hurricane Ridge visitors to carpool or use the new Hurricane Ridge Shuttle whenever possible and pay extra attention to making the best use of parking spaces.
Entrance fees are collected at the Heart O’the Hills entrance station whenever the road is open. Olympic’s seven-day entrance pass, which allows a private vehicle to enter any of the park’s roadways, costs $15. The Olympic National Park Annual Pass, good for one year after the purchase date, costs $30.
