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.
