This peak, with an elevation of 5,757 feet is near the head of Hurricane Creek three miles east of the Elwha Reservoir in east central Clallam County. It has been used as a forest fire lookout by the National Park Service. The name was given by early prospectors for the frequent, violent winds in the vicinity. Prior to 1916 the name Old Hurricane was in use. The Press Exploring Expedition of 1899 called it Mount Eldridge for William C. Eldridge of Washington D. C. Wood notes that at one time a road was laid to its summit but has now been replaced by a trail.
