Trail Overview

This road follows the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River up to the trailhead for Goldmyer hot springs (reservations are required and can be made online), Dingford Creek, and many more. The first half of the trail ranges from one to two car widths while winding through the trees. There are a number of dispersed camping sites next to the river (don't forget your bug spray), and you will find the remnants of old mines throughout the area. There are a number of small washouts on the second half of the road that have been dug out enough to get most vehicles through with appropriate care, even without 4x4, although good ground clearance never hurts. Expect to cross through various streams and wet areas in the spring when the snow is still melting.

Difficulty

While some of the washouts require some care, the trail is overall easy, and can even be done with low clearance vehicles and a skilled driver.

Gravel road with some pot holes. Beginner friendly. Any cars can do the trail, with a little bit of care. The road is closed at Dutch Miller gap trail head. Good camp spots along the trail. There are some washout sections "side of the trail" to have fun around, which could demand 4x4 based on how much you want to push. But over all a fun relaxing adhoc trail to choose, if you live in greater Seattle area.

Wet and rainy, so there were lots of puddles and some small water flows across the track. Saw 2 other vehicles on the track, but 3 or 4 vehicles parked at the Goldmyer Hot Springs trailhead at the end of the track. Also saw an unconcerned wildlife denizen about 10 meters off the track at one point.
