Please Note:


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

Venturing to the springs is a backcountry experience where guests must be self-supported and able to pack in (and out) all necessary supplies.

Amenities provided are very limited but do 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. No cell or internet connection available.

Visitors gain access to rugged terrain, hiking trails through old growth forest, beautiful waterfalls, a rich history of the Middle Fork Valley, and a crystal clear geothermal hot spring.

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

  • 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.
