We were staying nearby at the National Park Inn and decided to mix a cocktail and take the half mile loop at dusk. A wonderful after dinner stroll, the light was GREAT. Those travelling through the park, PARK, see the Museum, walk the loop, drive...More

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.

This is the trail and spring system across from the Longmire lodge. The trail is an easy walk surrounded by great nature. It is a great stop on the way up to Paradise.

In mid-March the Springs were full of cold, rather slimy water. They were interesting because of the history of the area that is explained and pictured on nearby signs along the walk, but I don't think they are usable. The warmer springs in the meadow...More

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...More

The trail of shadows was a nice cool-down hike that tells the story of the Longmire family. Very interesting!

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.
