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.

Access Report: Updated at least every Wednesday evening

As usual, visitors will still need a HIGH-GROUND-CLEARANCE VEHICLE, such as an SUV or truck, to safely reach the trailhead.

Be prepared for freezing temperatures at night.

With possible heavy wind, tree limbs can come down over the road, be prepared with tools to remove such debris.

If you are making reservations for winter months (late Nov-March), you will need even higher clearance with 4WD and snow chains.

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

  • Approx. 2 hrs driving to the trailhead from Seattle.
  • Approx. 2 hrs (4.5 miles one way) hiking to the Goldmyer property from the trailhead.
