Access Report: Updated at least every Wednesday evening

All visitors (over 12 years old) must show proof of COVID vaccination at check in. No exceptions (at this time, we cannot accept a negative test instead).


The calendar shows available openings for the current month.
  • Walk-ins are first come, first serve. If we're full for the day, you'll be turned away.
  • Same day walk-ins must have exact cash payment on the premises.
  • You may call the office to request and pre-pay for spots at least 2 business days (M-F) before your intended visit.
  • If it's less than 2 business days prior, we cannot reserve a spot and you'll need to attempt as a walk-in.

May 20, 2022:

IT IS STILL COLD IN THE MOUNTAINS: temperatures can be low 40s to mid 30s at night and 40-50 during the day.


  • HIGH GROUND CLEARANCE VEHICLES (9” clearance) with AWD/4WD can make it to the trailhead (Subarus can make it, but visitors say they wish they'd driven a larger vehicle).
  • There are often obstacles such as potholes, rock scree, tree limbs, and washouts you'll have to navigate.
  • The drive from the exit on the Forest Service road can take over an hour to the trailhead.
  • The hike from the trailhead is 4.5 miles each way (~10 miles round trip).
  • The hike takes people ~2-3 hours one way.
  • Mountain biking takes 1/2 the time of hiking.

TRAVEL TIME is 4 hrs (each way) from Seattle/Tacoma area. This includes DRIVING + HIKING because check in is on the property, not at the trailhead.

USE THE DIRECTIONS THAT WERE EMAILED TO YOU. Do not rely on GPS or other apps (even hiking apps), they may send you a different route!

Please monitor local weather conditions (North Bend, Middle Fork Valley, Snoqualmie Pass, etc). Goldmyer is at about 2,000 ft elevation.
