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.

This visitors center is at the far western edge of the park. There is a lodge, museum and a store. We also did a few of the easy, short hikes that start at this outpost. We got to see the original springs that lured pioneers and tourists to Mount Rainier since the 1800s. The Trail of Shadows trail gives you... More

Well marked gentle trail through the woods; a bit of history. Take time to do it. The history of the springs is interesting: the NPS essentially drove the proprietor out of business...but I don't think I would have wanted to spend any time in the springs anyway.
