Meet at 5:30 pm sharp at Teneriffe Falls Trailhead, near outhouse. This is approximately 3.65 miles from the I-90 exit 32 (436 Ave SE) for North Bend. Directions to meeting place will be emailed to all participants as soon as registration closes. Following introductions, description of route and current trail conditions, plan to start hiking a few minutes after 5:30 pm. The main parking lot requires a Discover Pass.

We'll work up a sweat on this moderate hike to the spectacular Teneriffe Falls (formerly known as Kamikaze Falls), which should be at full volume given spring rain and snow melt.

We'll stick together as a group on the main trail at about 2 mph until we get to the falls, and then stop for ~15 min for a snack. The last mile of the hike is over rocky trail (wrist size to household-pet size rocks in some places) with moisture and leaf cover - so hiking boots with ankle support are strongly recommended and poles are suggested.
