Amazing view!!

Go for a beautiful drive, and see an amazing view! It is best to go on a clear day. Yes that is Port Angeles, and also Canada.

Being from Port Angeles, I find I prefer to go to Deer Park instead of Hurricane Ridge. You get the same views, yet have quiet and solitude because the crowds will be at Hurricane Ridge. Keep in mind the road is rough, and that just adds to the adventure! Drive save and you will be amazed at the scenery.

If you can stomach the single-lane gravel road that twists and turns you up the mountain, then this is a must-do on your Olympic Peninsula tour. The view, unlike Hurricane Ridge, offers a 360 degree panoramic of the mountains AND the Straight of Juan De Fuca. It's kind of like the "Locals Only" version of Hurricane Ridge, lesser known but...

Pretty area, but we had lots of rain and dirt/gravel road. Would be nicer if road paved. Was expecting to see lots of deer, but not at the time we were there. Apparently they were getting ready to close the roads down for the winter season.

The views were outstanding but the deer made it natural. There is a herd of about 16 deer that frequent that area and the surrounding prairie. They will eat your sweat soaked clothes due to the salt. DO NOT HANG YOUR CLOTHES OUT TO DRY! The Deer Ridge trail had great views. Thy had a latrine and some nice campsites... More

The entrance to Deer Park is just east of Port Angeles. After the first few miles the road is very narrow with many sharp turns. We were there at the beginning of August and the view at the top was terrific. It was certainly worth the drive up.

Keep in mind that the road to Deer Park is only open about four months a year. My suggestion, go after mid July when rain is less likely, wild flowers will be in bloom, and you may have a spectacular view of the Olympics. I know people who live in the area who have never dared drive up this road.... More

We left sunny Port Angeles and drove north up Deer Park towards Blue Mountain. Shortly after the road turned to dirt at the entry to the national park, the clouds suddenly moved in...and we almost turned back. So glad we didn't. After several miles of mostly very good dirt road, we reached the Deer Park/Blue Mountain area, buried in a... More
