Meadow Loop Trails – 0.9mi / 1.4km
Paved trails explore the high alpine meadows and expansive views on Hurricane Ridge. Three different access points from the visitor center parking lot take you onto the Big Meadow Trail and the Cirque Rim Trail.
The shorter Big Meadow Trail bisects the meadow and provides lovely views. It connects to the Cirque Rim Trail at various points.
The Cirque Rim Trail takes you through trees along the rim of the cirque. Both trails are paved and have interpretive signs along the way.
A nice addition is to take the unpaved High Ridge Trail at the east end of the ridge to fantastic vantages. Head out to Sunrise Point for more views looking north to Vancouver Island. The loop and Sunrise Point add 0.7mi/1.1km to your day. (See Hurricane Ridge to Klahhane Ridge in 5-10 Miles for an even longer day.)
Trailhead: Follow the Hurricane Ridge Road to the visitor center. Access the trails from the parking lot.
