Just past the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center is a 3-mile round trip hike to the Heart of the Hills. Despite being a quick and not too difficult hike, it’s one of the best pacific northwest experiences. Right before you reach the top it can be a bit strenuous, simply because you’re gaining elevation quickly and if it’s a hot day, you’ll feel it. But, there’s no greater moment than reaching the actual heart of the hills and getting a 360-view of the mountains. I highly recommend it for sunset, it’s a site you have to see at least once in your life (I’ve seen it over 10 times and it never fails to impress me).
