Wonderful day hike up to Teneriffe Falls. Arrived at trailhead about 11am only to find 4 cars parked. Meet a nice young couple at the trailhead and talked to them about several local hikes (Index Wall Trail, Mt. Si, Dirty Harry's Balcony, Rattlesnake Ledge, etc...) Weather was partly sunny with a few showers on the way up the trail. The first mile was up the road beyond the gate...made a right at the first junction and continued another mile up the trail...these first two miles were an easy grade and the trail was dry and clear besides a few blowdowns. The last third of the hike, the last mile is where most of the elevation gain occurs...rocks dominate the trail and the few showers made for some slickness...poles and good boots are a good resource to have for the last mile. Along the last mile there are about 20 switchbacks and several places to view the falls from. Altogether, a wonderful hike to see an amazing falls. If you want to do lunch or stop, about 15 minutes up from the "teneriffe falls" trail sign, there is a nice, large, almost flat area to stop...enjoy your break, snack and falls...at the top the viewing is much more narrow and steep. Along the switchbacks there are several places to see Mount Washington and Rattlesnake Mountain.
Car to top about 1.25 hours...top to car about 1 hour
