The Springs

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, they include an open-air cabana at the hot spring pools, campsites with food hanging lines and containers, three stocked outhouses, two picnic tables, and a bike rack. No cellular 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.
