The spring is pretty gooped up with debris at this point. A nice waypoint on the Trail of Shadows, but I wouldn't make a trip just for this.

The historic spa springs are located on a short (3/4 mile) track at Longmire. It’s an easy walk with lots to see - we saw some deer feeding just off the path.

There isn't much left to see here at the historic hot springs but the loop hike through the area is spectacular. What a wonderful quiet place for a walk.

We did this hike in July and it was a nice hike with little to no elevation gain. This trail is historic and shows where the old building and springs are. There are good views of Mount Rainier from the trail, too.

Located on the Trail of Shadows, this is .2 of a mile from the National Park Inn. It's an easy walk - try it first thing in the morning - calm, cool, and no other people.

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....More
