The Hurricane Ridge map is centered on the Hurricane Ridge area of Olympic National Park. It extends from Obstruction Point on the south to Port Angeles on the north, from the Elwha River on the west to Deer Park on the east. There is a large scale inset of the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center and Ski Area. It is located on the North edge of the Olympic Mountains in Washington State, USA.
This map includes numerous trails connecting Hurricane Ridge with Heart O' the Hills, Little River, The Elwha, and Deer Park. It includes both of Olympic National Park's high country road access points: Hurricane Ridge and Deer Park. It also contains the middle reach of the Elwha River, including numerous trails there.
This map covers the entire Elwha River Restoration area, and currently is being released in successive short run versions which reflect the current state of this historic project. The map shows the shrinking extents of Lake Mills and Lake Aldwell as their dams are removed. It shows road closures and viewpoints. It will be a collector's item, documenting, in near real time, the largest dam removal in US History.
Trails are more accurate and up-to-date than any other published map we are aware of.
Winter ski routes are highlighted on this map.
A large scale inset shows the area around the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center (Lodge) in greater detail, including ski lifts, nature trails, and 50 foot contours.
Private land is identified with a shading pattern.
This area is at the intersection of four mismatched quads. This map is the only large scale map that doesn't break up most of the trails in this area. This map is the only one showing all of the trails accurately.
The map extends north to Port Angeles to include the entire Hurricane Ridge Road/Peabody Creek Trail corridor
Woodland shading updated to show timber harvest/regeneration activity, wildfires and other changes not shown on USGS or other commercial maps.
Map coordinates are placed on the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83), and UTM coordinates are shown compatible with the National Coordinate System.
