  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 10.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,400 ft
  • Pace: 2.0-3.0 mph

Let's all meet at the Mt Teneriffe Trailhead parking lot.  This is about a half mile past the Mt Si Trailhead parking lot.  Google Maps knows it as "Mount Teneriffe Trailhead."  

This is somewhat of a burly hike with a total elevation gain of around 3,400'. It's a steady upward grade until we get to the Mt Si connector trail. There's a good possibility of packed snow on trail as we get higher up and we suggest having micro-spikes and poles packed and available for this hike.
