VISITING GOLDMYER REQUIRES BACK-COUNTRY PREPAREDNESS AND HIKING EXPERIENCE.

  • Driving to the trail head includes a 5 mile segment of rough, unpaved, Forest Service road.
  • There is a 5 mile hike each way to reach the Goldmyer property and springs.
  • Driving and hiking combined is 4 hours each way from Seattle.

Only high clearance vehicles (such as a truck or SUV) are suitable on the road due to potholes and minor obstacles. We DO NOT recommend regular cars for the drive up the dirt road.

ATTN PCT HIKERS and other visitors: The alternative Middle Fork trail to access to Goldmyer is NOT RECOMMENDED at this time due to difficult river crossings. It is possible to hike in that way, but you must ford several creeks. For further information about the Middle Fork trail and other alternative hiking routes via the CCC or PCT visit WTA.org.
