Please Note:


Goldmyer Hot Springs is a gem of the wilderness found nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, roughly 25 miles east of North Bend, WA.

Visiting Goldmyer is a wilderness experience where guests are expected to pack in (and out) all necessary supplies.

Amenities provided to visitors by Goldmyer are limited but include an open-air cabana at the hot spring pools, campsites with food hanging lines and containers, two stocked outhouses, two public picnic tables, and a bike rack.

Visitors gain access to rugged wilderness terrain, hiking trails through old growth forest, beautiful waterfalls, and a crystal clear natural geothermal hot spring.

Goldmyer is owned and managed by Northwest Wilderness Programs, a nonprofit organization established in 1976 to protect this treasure of the wilderness for the use of generations to come.

Access Report: Updated at least every Wednesday evening

July 13, 2018:


  • Driving to the trail head includes a 5 mile segment of rough, unpaved, Forest Service road.
  • There is a 5 mile hike each way to reach the Goldmyer property and springs.
  • Driving and hiking combined is 4 hours each way from Seattle.

Only high clearance vehicles (such as a truck or SUV) are suitable on the road due to potholes and minor obstacles. We DO NOT recommend regular cars for the drive up the dirt road.

ATTN PCT HIKERS and other visitors: The alternative Middle Fork trail to access to Goldmyer is NOT RECOMMENDED at this time due to difficult river crossings. It is possible to hike in that way, but you must ford several creeks. For further information about the Middle Fork trail and other alternative hiking routes via the CCC or PCT visit
