Hurricane Ridge on a Drive-By, with Lunch?

Jump to last reply

Trying to coordinate a day's drive from Seattle to Port Angeles (to catch the 5:20 pm ferry to Victoria). We will have all day and so would like to optimize the few extra hours to visit Hurricane Ridge and maybe Lake Crescent. We'll leave Seattle around 9am (flight arrives the previous night)

Mostly, I'd like to plan a spot for a nice lunch and build around that. Have been looking at the lodges (Lake Crescent, Kalaloch, Log Cabin), but need some guidance. Looking for views, and not so far from Hurricane Ridge as to be too rushed, and a nice but casual lunch.

We have enough time for maybe one or two very short hikes on Hurricane Ridge (thinking maybe the meadow and also Hurricane Hill?) but that the drive up and back will consume some time. Figuring we will want to leave Hurricane Ridge around 3pm to get to Port Angeles and get in line (at least 90 minutes early) for the 5:20p ferry? We do have a reservation for that sailing.

This will be latter half of September. Your thoughts?
