Good stopping place if in the Park. Interesting history of the Springs and the Longmire family who developed a place for people to take the waters at. Cold Water Springs bubbling up from the ground in a number of spots and a nice short 1 mile hike around the springs through a lush forest on what is a mostly gravel path. Lots of parking and other hikes from his spot and even views of Mount Rainier when there is no clouds. Nice gift ship and lodge nearby. This whole Park is a scenic treat with great views around every corner. This specific entry location and road is basically the only place you can enter the Park and visit in May.

The Longmire area is located between the parks western entrance at Ashford and the Paradise area. Longmire is at the base of the mountain and was a perfect visit for our first morning in the park when the top was covered with fog. We hiked several trails here and got to see the springs that supplied water to the original town. While it may not be the best park of the mountain, it is a different part of the park that can have different weather. We greatly enjoyed our time here.

This is just a footnote in the much larger experience of Mt. Rainier National Park. If you happen to come in the entrance to the park that takes you by Longmire and you have the time and interest then stop here for the short stroll or walk.

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 National Parks Service did in 1922). However, what there is now is a quiet, peaceful 10 minute walking trail around the meadow and through the forest - lots of information panels. Well worthwhile.

There is an easy, circular trail around the lake/bog formed by the springs. It passes by the original Longmire springs and lodge where there are historic markers explaining some of the history of the place. The trail is very well marked and very well maintained. It passes through an interesting mix of swamp, dense forest, meadow and creek-side areas. Especially nice in the early morning or late evening when the light is softer and the sounds are muted.

We almost skipped this. Glad we didn't. Take the Trail of the Shadows to find the spot where the hot springs once were. Nearby you will see a cabin built by Longmire's son Elcaine Longmire in 1888. Be sure to open the cabin door if it is closed and take a peek inside.

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 trail is an easy trail that gives a historical overview of the springs, natural environment, and development of the area around the National Park Inn. It is an interpretive trail wich has signs and descriptions of how the Longmire family settled the area at the foot of Mt. Rainier. The trail is good for families with small children, elderly, and any other visitor who wants a short peaceful trek around the Longmire area.

It was a bit unusual to have a cold water mineral spring on a active volcano, but it was what brought the Longmire family to the mountain years ago.

While the stronger and more adventurous of our group hiked up into the mountains, the younger and less adventurous enjoyed this hike near Longmire. It is easily accessible for all ages and provides many opportunities for learning about the history and wildlife of the area. It can be easily completed in less than an hour.
