Let's meet at the Mt Teneriffe Trailhead at 8:30am. 

This hike will also be a great opportunity to experience about 4 very different types of trail.  First off, we’ll start off on a beautiful newly built (as of 2017) trail that takes us from the Mt Teneriffe Trailhead parking lot to the Mt Teneriffe Trail which is an old logging road converted to a nice wide hiking trail. From there we connect to the Teneriffe Falls Trail which continues as an old logging road trail and then dramatically switchbacks to a mostly talus (read very, very rocky) trail that’ll take us on up to the Falls. We’ll ooh and ahh at the Falls for a bit and then on the way back we plan to head off the main trail and access an old connector trail that is unmantained and a little rough but still navigable which will connect us to the Mt Teneriffe Trail. But wait….there's more!  We will again head off that trail and do a loop on the Mt Si Talus Loop Trail which will then connect us up to the Roaring Creek Trail and back to the Mt Teneriffe Trail and finally on back to the trailhead.   Whew!  This is gonna be fun!
