Please Note:


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

Venturing on the 4.5 mile hike from the trailhead to the 20 acre wilderness preserve 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.

As usual, visitors will still need a HIGH-GROUND-CLEARANCE VEHICLE, such as an SUV or truck, to safely reach the trailhead. This is necessary throughout the summer and into autumn.

If you are making reservations for autumn and winter, you will need even higher clearance with 4WD.

Do not use GPS! Follow the directions emailed to you with the reservation confirmation.
