The Goldmyer Hot Springs are reservation only and on private property. Information can be found at http://www.goldmyer.org. They will provide you with clear written directions on how to get there once you make a reservation. FYI it took us 45 minutes to get to the trailhead after we hit the rough road after the middle fork campground. The trail was 11 miles long with minimal elevation change (about 800 feet elevation gain). The trail was wide most of the way and had lots of small rocks. I recommend hiking boots to save your ankles. We went in August so there wasn’t any water on the trail but I imagine it is pretty muddy with water crossings in the fall/winter/spring. The hot springs have 3 hot pools and one cold pool. They are small and relatively shallow but still beautiful and worth it. (The cave with the hottest and deepest pool was closed due to covid when we went).

I completed it in 2017, one my favorite hikes. We took the way through the woods in March, pretty sure the path went down at the start. There was some snow it wasn't bad though. Had to walk through some streams, rivers in maybe less then a foot of water. We didnt mind this. Also, was a area we walked across logs to get across a actual river. Hot springs were nice, cave was beautiful. Place was pretty surreal and it was raining. Theres also a huge waterfall next to the hot springs you hear, and see. On way out we took the trail that was straight and some took 4 wheelers on. It wasnt very interesting. honestly quite boring compared to taking the other way. The road to the hiking trail though is horrible. I took my suv with high clearance. ugh. you basically drive thru almost a rocky river bottom in one area. and some the potholes... horrible.

The last six miles of the drive is very rocky and filled with potholes, so make sure you have a high clearance vehicle. The hike there was pretty flat and easy, it took us about two hours to get to the cabin and then another ten minutes to the springs. We really enjoyed the hot springs. We went in the middle of the week, so there were only two other people there.

The trail was super flat and beautiful. Was able to hike the trail from the parking lot to the springs in under two hours. (20 minute mile average). The springs themselves was the best experience that the wife and I have done. We will totally go and do this again. Probably walk slower and enjoy the scenery better and enjoys the things we may have missed. The road to the parking lot was rough but we were able to make do even in the rain.

Visited last week and loved it! The trail getting there was an easy long walk, the hardest part was once checked in the small hike to the springs. Beautiful scenery. Can’t wait to visit again.

The road to get to the trail had lots of potholes. Really easy hike though, almost all flat except for a 15 min walk up to the springs once you reach the caretakers cabin. The hot springs themselves are amazing as well. 100% will visit again

Road getting in is gravel and filled with pot holes requiring an appropriate vehicle to get to the trailhead. Once on the trail, it is mostly flat all the way to the care taker cabin. Then a 10 min hike up to the springs once checked in. Beautiful hike along the river the whole way passing through very large trees, like hiking through the redwoods. The springs had three warm to hot pools and one cold pool. Only 20 people allowed per day and is strictly enforced which is good due to how small the pools are. I would definitely go again.

A bit rocky path but a great hike for a beginner hiker as there’s not a lot of elevation gain until the last leg. You must register to hike and use the hot springs. Beware the road leading to the trailhead is full of potholes and a big washed out area. I would highly recommend that hikers take an SUV/truck as our sedan barely made it to the trailhead without any damage. Overall a good day hike though.

Nice mellow hike along a forest service road to the caretaker's cabin. I made reservations 1 month prior and was shocked it was full for a Monday so plan ahead! The trail from the cabin to the hotsprings is beautiful, with giant cedars, and very well taken care of. The hotsprings and cabana are very clean! It looks small but head up inside the cave and there is plenty of room (and the warmest spot). Awesome hidden gem for sure!!

Beware the pot holes!!!! Especially right next the the camp grounds sign where the paved road ends and before the one lane bridge. Good hike in as it started to snow and saw a black bear on the way out (ran away like a kid who got caught in the cookie jar once he saw us on the other side of the river watching him/her) also saw deer by the host cabin and of course loved soaking in the hot springs

Just got back from my over night trip and it was amazing! The camp grounds and hot spring were very well maintained and clean. The camp care giver was very kind.i was surprised with how many people were there for how late in the year it is, but my over all experience was amazing!

Hiking

The first time I was at Goldmyer Hot Springs was in January of 1978, I think. The bridge at Taylor River Campground was out, so we hiked in (12 miles or so). Being January, it was cold, but the year we were up there was a very light snow year. When my friend and I got there, there was a couple leaving, who had occupied the only standing cabin from the old resort. We got it for the time we were there. Totally dilapidated, but homey. From that point forward we were in a wonderland, trails leading to all kinds of derelict mechanisms, and to the springs. Being in that generation, and having read In Watermellon sugar, we identified this as "The Forgotten Works," and with headlamps explored all around. Everything was covered in ice crystal which gleamed in the night; this is one of my greatest memories of the 70s. Rest of the time we basked in the springs. I look forward to returning.

Amazing and magical. It took two years to get a permit. Next time I’ll be staying overnight.

Very easy hike, love it! It's about 8 miles round trip. I would recommend go early so you could enjoy the hot springs longer. Remember, don't get too relax cause you still have to hike 4 miles back!
