Route Description for Mount Teneriffe via Kamikaze Trail
The hike up Mount Teneriffe on Kamikaze Trail is no small task, but you’ll be happy you did the work to discover the views! This is a steep, hard trail, so we recommend coming in good weather and bringing poles if you have them.
From the parking lot, take the 1.0 km access trail and turn left on the old logging road. This road quickly narrows to a trail. After 0.6 km on this trail, look for the Teneriffe Falls signage and follow it. This recently improved trail follows switchbacks in and out of a talus field until it reaches Kamikaze Trail.
Just before reaching the falls, look for a climber’s trail to the right. You’ll backtrack to this after checking out the falls. Follow this trail as it climbs 122 m to a saddle and go left to ascend directly up the ridge. The trail heads to hiker’s left through a meadow and a rock band. After passing through a last stand of trees, take a short scramble to reach the summit.
On the way down, carefully descend the scramble and then make your way to the trailhead via the same path.
