I'm looking at trying to add this route into a trip later in the year ... how much time do I need to budget for a proper ride from Port Angeles up to the top of Hurricane Ridge and back down?

Probably less than 2 hours depending on traffic, photo stops in-between for the vista and a break at the top. It's not long and you can skip or ride past most areas with the rest break still and get it all in far quicker.

Hey Dan and Nicole, sorry have to bail on the ride. Last minute meeting came up which I can not miss.  :'(  Looks like the weather is clearing up too after the previous day's showers at the end of the ride. Have a great time! Look forward to some pictures from Hurricane Ridge!

I would be impressed and somewhat scared if you could remember everything you saw while in our neighborhood. :)
