    Directions to Trailhead

    Teneriffe Falls via Mount Teneriffe Trail is a heavily trafficked out-and-back trail in the Mount Si Natural Resources Conservation Area that is rated as moderate. These falls are gorgeous when flowing, but that’s part of the trip planning-try to hike this trail earlier in the season as the falls can dry up later into the summer. While this isn’t a very challenging hike, it does get rocky and a bit harder to follow near the end, so good boots and GPS will be helpful.

    Route Description for Teneriffe Falls via Mount Teneriffe Trail

    Teneriffe Falls via Mount Teneriffe Trail is a rewarding trip through a cool, misty forest to dripping falls with mountain views. Hikers will share the trail with others bound for the summit of Mount Teneriffe, so the hike can get a bit congested. Visiting in the early morning or during the week can minimize traffic. The first half of the trail is easy to follow and well-maintained, but the second half gets a bit rocky and some hikers report losing the trail. GPS and good boots will help you get the most out of this hike.

    The falls don’t always have water flowing over them. Try to do this hike in the late spring for the best chance of a real waterfall experience, as they may dry up in hotter summers.

    The hike begins from the parking area. Head north on Mount Teneriffe Trail, which is initially well-maintained. Sneak peeks of the mountains through the trees as you go. The elevation is consistent and moderate as you cruise around two wide switchbacks, then straighten out to follow a creek.

    Where the creek splits into two arms, go right onto Teneriffe Falls Trail as Mount Teneriffe Trail splits off to the left. There are two junctions up next, and you’ll stay left at both.

    Cross the stream twice before the trail flattens out a bit before switchbacking towards the falls. This is rocky and steeper, so take your time Avoid the Teneriffe Falls Connector to your left at the 5th switchback.

    Reaching the falls, catch your breath and enjoy the flowing water. From here you’ll turn around and retrace your steps back to the parking lot.
