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 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

January 18, 2019:

Along with new snowfall, some places on the road are washed out, therefore: High-clearance LARGE SUVs and TRUCKS are necessary for the drive to the trail head.

Subarus and other small SUVs ARE NOT suitable for the road at this time!!

3"+ of snow plus ice means foot traction is recommended. More snow is expected this weekend with below freezing Temps at night.

Be prepared by bringing chains in your vehicle for the drive on the Middle Fork Road. Also pack other tools including a chain saw; high winds can drop trees over the road.

  • Driving to the trail head (parking area) includes an 18 mile segment of Forest Service road with 5 miles of unpaved rough road.
  • There is a 4.5 mile hike each way to reach the Goldmyer property and springs from the Forest Service parking area.
