Are Special Permits Required?

There are no permits or fees required to access or have a wedding at Gold Creek Pond Loop in Washington. Gold Creek Pond is located in the Snoqualmie Pass area of the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, and it’s a popular spot for hiking and enjoying the beautiful scenery, especially during the summer and early fall months. To avoid crowds, I recommend a sunrise elopement!

However, you will need the Discover Pass (Northwest Forest Pass) to avoid a parking fine, it’s always a good idea to check for regulations and policies. You can check here: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/mbs/passes-permits/recreation/?cid=stelprdb5353509
