Kamikaze (Teneriffe) Falls

A moderate 6.5 mile day hike with 1,300 feet of elevation gain to a beautiful waterfall in the Mount Si Natural Resources Conservation Area near North Bend.

Getting there

Take Exit 32 off of I-90 near North Bend. Turn left, crossing over I-90, and follow 468th Ave NE to SE North Bend Way and turn left.  Turn right onto SE Mount Si Road. After crossing the bridge across the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River, continue ~3 miles to the large paved parking area on the left (820 ft).

Notes

  • The parking lot open only from 7:00am to 5:00pm.
  • The school-bus turnaround is now off-limits for parking.

on the trail

From the parking lot, take the new 0.6-mile access trail and turn left on the old logging road. This road quickly narrows to a trail which goes first north then turns west. After 0.4 mile on this trail, look for the sign marked "Teneriffe Falls" and take it. This recently improved trail follows switchbacks in and out of a talus field until it reaches Kamikaze (aka Teneriffe) Falls at about 2,450 ft.

notes

  • The falls overlook can only accommodate about 3 to 4 people.
  • The falls overlook area has slippery rocks and steep dropoffs. Be extra careful here, especially with young children.
