Hurricane Ridge Road at Olympic National Park is scheduled to open for the summer season Thursday. If the weather allows, the road will be open seven days a week and 24 hours a day from May 7 through Nov. 1.


Nearly 90 inches of snow still blankets Hurricane Ridge however, and snow showers are predicted this week, so visitors should call the park’s Road and Weather Hotline at 360-565-3131 or stop by the Olympic National Park Visitor Center for current information about road and weather conditions. The visitor center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Travelers need to be aware that the Hood Canal Bridge is closed for another five-plus weeks. They will need to find an alternative route around the closure.


Hurricane Ridge is located 17 miles south of Port Angeles at an elevation of 5,242 feet.
