This is my favorite type of hike! I love feeling like a kid by climbing on rocks :) dangerous, but a thrill. Don't forget to stop and look at the scenery

The first part of the trail was very easy. The trail on the mountain wasn't especially steep but it was very rocky so it was tricky in places. I had to scramble a couple of times. They were also narrow. I didn't go all the way up because I knew the falls were dry this time of the year. I got there early so I was able to park with no problem in the very same lot.

Very easy! Nice longer walk to enjoy it's like taking the road to Mordor except it's not the fiery flames of Mount Doom you approach it's a kick ass waterfall!! Fun to climb on, get some good traction shoes and tackle some boulders when you reach the top!! Beautiful walk!

BEST hike I've been on so far! This trail has it all....rocks....uphill climb....great views. And the falls literally sneak up on you as you round the corner and then BAM, there they are. Absolutely gorgeous. I've rated a lot of trails and this is the first one I've given 5 stars. Just go and try it! You won't be disappointed.

A trail that allows you to both stretch your legs and speed through the easy, well-maintained stretches, and then challenge your elevation acquisition skills on the switchbacks leading to the waterfall. After reaching the falls, I tried my hand at the trail stretching to the summit but ran out of time. Another day, perhaps.

Overall, the condition of the trail was first rate. There were a few places around the waterfall where the trail fragmented, split and recombined, and I may have lost the mail trail, but this is normal around falls, lakes and other points of interest.

Note that the sign on the logging road around the 1 mile mark indicates Teneriffe Falls, but this is also the trail you take to the summit.

The waterfall was mostly dried up but there was a nice pool and a trickle of water still going. The rocky part of the trail was a little difficult on the way down but not impossible. My dog loved it.

Nice shady trail....especially good for a hot sunny day-hike. We started early...8:30am and only saw other hikers as we were coming down. No water on the falls though, due to the dry weather the last 9 months.
