The Roaring Creek Trail connects the popular Mount Si and Mount Teneriffe Trails. This short walk through serene forests can be used to make a small loop with nearby trails such as Talus Loop Trail, or as a connector for a challenging day that includes both Mount Si trail and Mount Teneriffe trail.

Via Mount Si Trail:

0.7 miles into the Mount Si Trail, take a right at the sign for Talus Loop Trail. After about 300 feet, head right at the sign for Roaring Creek Trail. The narrow dirt trail is less travel-worn than its popular neighbors, and descends into a forest thick with ferns and second-growth trees.

A half-mile from the Roaring Creek Trail sign, cross the bridge over a creek featuring a small waterfall. Continue for 0.1 miles, meeting with the Mount Teneriffe trail at a shallow water crossing. Left will continue up towards Mount Teneriffe, while right heads down to the junction with Teneriffe Falls trail, and the Mount Teneriffe Parking area.

Via Mount Teneriffe Trail:

Beginning at the Mount Teneriffe trail adds a small amount of elevation gained as this junction is lower than the western side.

1.5 miles into the Mount Teneriffe Trail, take a left at the sign for Roaring Creek Trail. After 0.1 miles, cross the bridge over a creek featuring small waterfall. This dirt trail is less travel-worn than its popular neighbors, and ascends into a forest thick with ferns and second-growth trees.

Continue for half a mile through forests thick with ferns and second-growth trees. A half-mile from the bridge, you'll arrive at a junction with the Talus Loop trail. Here, you can continue straight for 300 feet to meet the Mount Si trail, or turn right to hike the Talus Loop Trail.
