If your staying or passing through Longmire, the beaver creek trail right across from the Longmire lodge is worth stopping. You will likely see some deer and many birds. The spring is on the loop trail and always seems to be flowing.

The park service has created an enjoyable short interpretive walk to explore the mineral springs area that was originally developed as a health spa and tourist attraction. This can also be the start of the moderately strenuous "Ramparts" climb through old growth forest to stunning views of Mt. Rainier and the ridges to the south. The return to Longmire is... More

While there were historically (1890) hot springs, sulphur springs etc here and a spa resort with lots of cabins and a hotel, today there is merely one ancient cabin and the remains of a spring bubbling with carbon dioxide and another bubbling with sulphurous water. All in all it seemed a shame to return it to nature (which the US... More

Loved this place! It was an easy, little trail with cool sights! The air smelled funny, but it was awesome! The water bubbled, the trees were pretty, and they remains of the spring were cool. The walk was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone!

The remnants of the Longmire Springs are located along the Trail of the Shadows. This trail is located across the main road from the Longmire Museum and National Park Inn. Unlike the hot springs at Ohanapecosh, these springs were cool. This is a self-guided interpretive trail. We traveled counter-clockwise and saw another spring near a building, this time the color...

When we inquired about Springs, one ranger told us that they were small and recently had high levels of carbon dioxide. So much so that small critters aroudn it had been overcome by gas. Still we saought it out and when we asked in Longmeyer we were told there were none. The museum is a 30min free attraction that is... More

On the hiking train across the street from the National Park Inn at Mt Rainier, can be found a few traces of the early years of the resort town of Longmire, An old hotel once sat near the mineral springs and the springs still looks to be structurally sound. The water flowing there is full of iron oxide and probably... More

The interpretive trail here was very interesting, easy, and enjoyable. It explains a lot of the geologic and human history of the area, and boasts a really cool log cabin and hot spring.

Peaceful 30 minute walk through the woods to the site of an historical resort in the woods founded over 50 years ago. Good for all ages and abilities.

This is your first view of Mt Rainier. There is a museum and some exhibits at this stop. I recommend the short hike "trail of the Shadows. A nice stroll around the springs and marsh area. The hike is relatively flat, but not handicap accessible.
