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

Mixed rain and snow expected throughout the week.

Please view weather reports for the Middle Fork Valley.

High-clearance LARGE SUVs and TRUCKS are recommended year-round and may be necessary during Fall and Winter. Currently, Subarus and other SUVs are ok, but as snow accumulates, they will no longer be suitable.

  • Driving to the trail head (parking area) includes a 20 mile segment of Forest Service road and at least 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.
