Olympic National Park has established a new page on its website to provide up-to-date information about the Hurricane Ridge Road and adding a new way for visitors to learn about visiting this popular destination in winter.
“We hope this page provides a new and helpful avenue for visitors to learn about conditions on the ridge,” said Olympic National Park Superintendent Karen Gustin.
Current Hurricane Ridge information is also available by calling the park’s Road and Weather Hotline at 360-565-3131 or by listening to 530 AM in the immediate Port Angeles area.
Weather permitting, the Hurricane Ridge Road is scheduled to be open daily from Friday, December 19 through Sunday, January 4, 2009, except for December 25 when the road will be closed.
“Even when the road is scheduled to be open, storms and avalanches can prevent us from opening, or can force an early closure,” emphasized Gustin. “We urge all visitors to check the new webpage or the Road and Weather Hotline before leaving home.”
The Olympic National Park Visitor Center is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. except for December 25 when it will be closed. The Hoh Visitor Center is open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Friday through Sunday throughout the winter. The park’s administrative offices in Port Angeles are open Monday through Friday, but will be closed on December 25 and 26 for the federal holiday, and on January 1, 2009.
