Best Trails in Olympic National Park, Washington

Popular and easy hikes in Olympic National Park, Washington

  • Hurricane Hill Trail: This trail starts at the end of the Hurricane ridge road and the trailhead is almost 1.3 miles from the visitor center. The hike is about 3 miles out and back, considered as moderate, and features great views of surrounding peaks. Be prepared for snow at any time of the year in Hurricane Ridge. Pictures and more info here.
  • Ruby Beach Trail: A short hike from the parking lot that offers a sweet and nice climb over rocks and driftwood and lands on the stunning, expansive beach with sea stacks all over. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes/sandals as the walk is a little steep and also needs to cross the driftwood to access the beach. Pictures and more info here.
