Hike to Teneriffe Falls (Kamikaze Falls)

Details

Added by Molly Adshead

Incredible waterfall. Lush, dense forest. Some fantastic views on the way to the falls. Distance- 6 miles round trip. Elevation gain: 1,420 ft. Highest Point: 2370.

The lesser known Mt Si Rd trail starts off as a relatively flat road. This continues for two miles until you reach the Teneriffe Falls sign. Upon turning right at this junction, the terrain takes a shift and the incline steepens. This is where most of the elevation is gained.

The rest of the way is a series of rocky switchbacks. Be wary of the loose rocks, but don't forget to soak in the beauty of this lush forest. Occasionally you'll be able to catch scenic views from above the trees and the seemingly endless greenery.

Exploring the falls is a must, but take care where you step; the surrounding areas are rocky, somewhat steep and slippery. Here is a great photo op, especially using your friends to compare to the massive height of Teneriffe Falls. Spring and Summer are prime times for this hike, as the glacial melt will improve the waterfall's size.

Take note that the parking area is very small and on peak days can become crowded. The Discover pass is also required.

A great hike with a beautiful waterfall. There are some narrow spots on the switchbacks which make passing on a busy day tough. I saw some kids out there making the trek to the top but the parents did have to carry them often.

An intermediate hike with an awesome pay off! Once you reach the fall plan for time to scramble around a bit and explore.
