  • Very Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 16.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 4,500 ft

We will meet at the Bella Rosa Coffee House (just SW of the Clallam County Courthouse) at ~9am, and then caravan a short distance to the trailhead.  For those taking the Edmonds-Kingston Ferry this will require catching the 7:10am sailing (the earliest on this day).

Beautiful and strenuous conditioner (~16 miles and ~4500') to Hurricane Ridge (elevation 5073 feet) using the Little River trail (scramble due to recent snow).  As time and conditions allow we may also  visit the actual summit of Hurricane Hill (elevation 5757 feet).  Owing to the recent and ongoing damage to the Olympic Hot Springs road, this is an alternate approach to the shorter Elwha-Hurricane Hill trail that begins near the Elwha Ranger Station.  When access to the Elwha-Hurricane Hill trail is restored a great loop trip would be to use the Little River trail for ascent, and the Elwha-Hurricane Hill trail for descent.
