Olympic National Park: Current Updates

Before you set out on your Olympic National Park adventure or even just head up to Hurricane Ridge, we recommend checking the Olympic National Park’s website for alerts, current updates and information AND by tuning in to their Twitter accounts for the most current park announcements like new trail openings, weather updates, road closures, construction, etc. The Olympic National Park is almost a million acres in size which equates to a lot of territory and forest to manage. Let’s give our park rangers a hand for getting us this information!
