Olympic National Park will host an exciting opportunity for cyclists to “Ride the Hurricane” between 7:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 4.

To provide a safe experience for the event, the road will be closed to all motor vehicle traffic between the Heart O’ the Hills entrance station and Hurricane Ridge, starting at 6:00 a.m. and ending at noon. This applies to both uphill and downhill travel. The road will open to traffic at noon, when the event is finished. 

The event is a recreational climb into the Olympic Mountains on the scenic Hurricane Ridge Road. The Port Angeles Chamber of Commerce is organizing the ride, with sponsorship from local businesses.

Olympic National Park will waive entrance fees at the Heart O’ the Hills entrance station for the rest of the day on August 4.  Access to the Lake Angeles-Heather Park trailhead and Heart O’ the Hills Campground will remain open throughout the day.
