I did this once and really enjoyed it. It is just in our backyard but also a good hike. Everyone is welcome, but you also need to know your limit. I would say if you can do Big Si then you shoudl be fine. The Plan:

Meet at the Park and Ride at 7 and coordinate carpooling to the trailhead.

Drive to the new Teneriffe parking lot.

Boots on the trail by about 7:45. Hike to the waterfall and break for a few minutes. Continue to the summit and break for about 30 minutes.

Hike back down to the Parking lot.

Drive back to the Park and Ride. I expect to back at the Park and Ride around 3:30-4:00 PM

About the Hike:

Hike to the waterfall, taking scramble route that starts by the creek at the third or fourth switchback OR following the main trail. After a short break at the waterfall, we can then push on to the ridge above which is about 1/3 mile distance and almost 800 feet vertical gain. We can continue on the ridge just beyond a series of scrambling rocks that dot the ridge for the next 1/2 mile or so. From this point, we can continue to the summit hiking the steep ridge, it is an additional 1.25 miles from that point with significant elevation gain. It is likely the trail will be snow covered for the last 1/4 mile to the summit and microspikes will be required.

Teneriffe:

Teneriffe is slightly higher in elevation and receives much more snow than Si. The mountain offers many more rewards than Si- waterfalls, views, fewer crowds, great summit top and a steep trail. At least above the falls.

Mount Teneriffe Trail is a 7-mile road and trail hike located near North Bend, Washington. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for hiking. From the same road, you can also get to Mount Si and Dixie Peak. The first part of the trail is mostly flat road with very little, if any, change in elevation. The trail then climbs to about the 2.5-mile area by the 150-foot Teneriffe Falls. Beyond that, it is a steep ridge climb all the way to the top (about 4.5 miles and just under 4000 feet of hiking).

Teneriffe Falls is a veil of water that crashes down from 150 feet above and can be gushing and stunning in spring, especially this year.

Stats:

Mt Teneriffe elevation is 4,788 feet

About 8 miles roundtrip

About 3,900 feet elevation gain

What to Bring:

"Your bright smile, great attitude, food and water for the day, snacks, camera, wind and sun protection, hiking poles (optional), traction devices (microspikes), ten essentials, gaiters, and other personal essentials". We may need snowshoes depending on snow condition by then. Driving Directions:

From I-90, take exit 32 (436th Avenue SE). Turn left (north) over the freeway and drive 0.5 miles to SE North Bend Way. Turn left (west), and in 0.25 mile turn right (north) on SE Mt Si Road. In 2.9 miles (past the Little Si and Mt Si trailheads), you will reach a large paved parking area on the left. Restrooms are available at the trailhead.

Discover Pass required for each vehicle

How to find us:Gray Toyota Pickup Truck with conopy.
