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.

First 1.5 miles is nice, the 2nd half is a good elevated climb, very rocky in areas along the trail though. Good scenic spots on the way up to the waterfall too! I'd do the hike again and then do the kamikazes trail up to Teneriffe Peak.

I loved this trail! We live about an hour away and found it no problem with gps. We brought my dog and she had a wonderful time, even though it was pouring rain. Absolutely beautiful hike, with fantastic views from many points. While not extremely strenuous, was not exactly easy either. The switchbacks are rocky and pretty steep on the last mile or so up. All the elevation gain is the last mile and a half in. Just be prepared to work some legs!!!
Beautiful, clean, well worth the trip kind of hike.

Thanks all for the earlier posts on trail conditions and parking.

Trail head is difficult to find. Go out Mt. Si Road past Mt. Si entrance, watch for sign on right for bus turnaround to the left. Park in the turnaround (Discover Pass required) but leave room for bus to turnaround. Very limited parking. Went on a weekday morning in the hopes of less foot traffic.

Great trail, easy to moderate. Agree with other posts, hiking boots a must, walking sticks helpful. Easy trail with slight incline to start, trail has some rocks. Was hoping to get to Kamikaze Falls, but came to the sign for Teneriffe Falls first. Headed up that trail, instead. Trail is still pretty wide and easy, still slight incline, then you come to the switchbacks. Lots of rocks (not gravel) used to maintain the trail. Switchbacks start. Only made it about 3/4 of the way up before we headed back down. Once we got back to the bottom of the trail (sign) headed out another mile or so to see if we could get to Kamikaze Falls. Lots of trail work being done, crossed 3 bridges with small waterfalls.

Great hike for a workout, enjoyed the beautiful day and blue skies. Looking forward to doing this hike again and hopefully getting to Kamikaze Falls and to the top of Teneriffe Falls. . . maybe even the top of the Mt. Teneriffe. I've been reading that it's a pretty steep climb to the top. Probably worth the view.
