Excellent hike / workout that is sort but sweet - beautiful views at the top!

Great trail that will give you a workout. It was great for the dog. The lookout at the top was a bit socked in so the view can be a bit lackluster if conditions are right.

I chose this trail due to its Moderate rating in difficulty, but damn, it was definitely a reminder of how out of shape I am. Bring hella water. This trail does not let up, it’s literally straight steep for 2 miles. So just a little warning if you get a little huffy and puffy like me. If I would have known, I would have chose a longer hike with less of an incline ! Haha the view is totally worth it though!

Hiked this back in December with a buddy. We spent one night at lower Lena lake and had a great time! This was my first hike in the Olympics, and I was amazed by the massive trees and beautiful blue lake. Look forward to my next trip out!

Good hike family friendly weather was perfect. Good for all level hikers.

In the snow, this hike was OK. Only made it about 70-80% up. Did it in sneakers and kept punching through the snow near the top. First time hiking this trail so no idea where I was going. Followed the snowshoe tracks until they stopped.

Sad - no good pictures and not much to see. But then again, didnt do the entire hike.

the trail was easy to find with the picture of the gate already posted. The issue was there was no markings to follow. One trail followed along the stream and ended, the other trail went up to the bridge that didnt have any signs for zig zag. We went left and walked accross the bridge and say multiple rock climbers but the trail was a road. Some cool views but without the signs we didn't do the intended hike.

great views of North and South sound

This was an amazing trail! It was a constant workout on the way up, but only two miles, so not too bad. The trail is in great condition! Almost all of the snow was gone, just a little bit at the north view point. Both views were breath taking! Coming down was tough on my knees even with poles, but still loved the hike!

Very good hike. I would say moderate to strenuous. Views on top are amazing, mountains on the North view and beautiful views of Hood Canal on South view about another half mile.

One of the best trails in Washington! The scenery is breathtaking on the top.
A little icy the last part of the trails so microspikes were helpful.

A great hike today. Due to the snow fall the past two weeks, the last half of the trail still has snow on it ... so bring your trekking poles. :)

Great hike, didn’t go all the way up seeing as we’re not in our best shape and we ran into slippery snow and forgot spikes. expect a solid 2 miles of all up hill. Plan to try again soon though. Tough enough to slow me down and take breaks, but not so tough that it was impossible.

Beautiful hike with the snow! Still doable with hiking boots, but would recommend having something else, especially for going back down.

I can see how this trail could be really rewarding. Today the first couple miles had no snow but toward the lake it was snowy. There were several people stuck slipping and sliding but we marched right through with micro-spikes (highly recommended). The day was overcast and off and on rain. The Lake was mostly frozen. Fairly easy hike with mild elevation gain. Great trail!

I’d say this is more hard than moderate. It’s 10-20% grades and 2,000 elevation gain at 2 miles up and another 2 down. I’d say poles or a walking stick would be a good idea. Look up the weather conditions before you go, it was a whiteout when I got to the top.

Such a beautiful day and hike! It was quiet and beautiful and clear. Fresh snowfall early in the morning and myself and another group were the first ones up... It was a decent hike upwards for the first half, but nothing too difficult. Didn’t even need cramp-ons.

I took the Upper Lena Lake trail for a mile and turned around - it got way too slick and icy in patches. I have good boots, but not good enough for that one.

The hike down was much wetter and more slick. Not terrible, just had to be cautious. And there were a ton more people heading up as I finished (11:00-ish).

Definitely worth doing and the lake would be so beautiful to hang out at on a warm sunny day!

Started on Mount Si Trail, turned to Talus Loop Trail (there is a fallen tree across the trail, smaller guys may go below the tree, I had to go over) and get to Teneriffe Logging Road, all covered with snow. Then I missed the turn to Teneriffe Falls Connector, had to go back, difficult to find without GPS. There is NO TRAIL, wrong season probably, everything covered with snow, very difficult to find the way. But I finally made it to Teneriffe Falls Trail. Had to jump over the creek though to get to the trail, pretty slippery. Definitely NOT recommending using this Teneriffe Falls Connector this time - go through Lower Teneriffe Connector to Teneriffe Logging Road and Teneriffe Falls Trail. I used this route back from Teneriffe Falls, trail is fine everywhere except one big fallen tree on Lower Teneriffe Connector, possible to pass.

Closer to Teneriffe Falls the trail is very steep and slippery. I made it in regular hiking boots but I wish I had micro spikes or something like that, that would help a lot. Be careful near the Falls, ice fall down! It almost hit me while I was taking pictures right next to the Falls.

Overall good hike, longer than promised, I recorded 8+ miles, would be more if you go 2-way through Lower Teneriffe Connector.

Hiked 2/12/18 and LOOOOVEEDD it. Would personally rate as easy, but that’s just me. Was a beautiful day and didn’t want to leave the lake.

We hiked this trail on a snowy February day, but when we arrived we only had sun. I'm from out of state, so perhaps this is a rain shadow hike? The trail is very well marked with pit toilets at the trailhead. I liked that the trail ascends very consistently at more or less the same incline. It made it more enjoyable but still enough of a challenge. For a winter hike, bring lots of layers. There was a lot of wind at the top and I quickly added about 3 layers to stay warm. My black lab mutt was shivering, so we had a coat and a backpack for her. When you get to the top down by the lake, the trail continues on the left a ways. Don't try to go right as the trail ends and there are large boulders. The trail only had a few muddy spots. There was a very thin layer of snow at the top. The lake itself is relatively large for an alpine lake. We arrived in the afternoon and had to sit in the shade along the shoreline. The drive to get here is also really pretty since you drive along the sound for a while.

It was nice and beautiful but to windy at the top!

Good hike, very steep, as a averagely fit 23 year old the way up is definitely challenging and very steep without many breaks, the way down will definitely hurt if you don’t have the right shoes and a walking stick. The South point gives a nice view of Seattle as well!

Feb 11 - Great view up top on a sunny day. Wish there wasn’t a fence. Worth walking to the south viewpoint as well. Crampons not needed, only a small amount of packed snow at top.

Beautiful way to spend a sunny winter day, steady uphill hike. Busy even on a cold day, better to start early before the crowds. Rocks and tree roots throughout the trail but still a very well maintained trail.

Very wet hike!! Water proof everything is a necessity. Did not complete the full loop to Mt. Teneriffe, winds were pretty bad towards to top and we were not prepared for the drop in temperature. Still a solid day!! Great for dogs; my pup loved everything except the conditions at the top. Planning on returning to do the full loop when we get a clear day.

so many different trail

The waterfall was definitely a rewarding site to see. Through a little sleet, rain and dry spells, we enjoyed this hike. Most of it was well marked until we missed a new (?) section that was hardly a trail. The GPS on the AllTrails app put us back on the trail when we missed it. It was also confusing how to complete the loop and get on the Tenerife Falls Trail, so we came back the way we went up on Talus Loop Trail. It was still a long, beautiful hike.

STEEP.
But worth it! My legs killed by the end of this one! No water on the trail, make sure to bring plenty.

Great hike. The views were stunning. It’s a there and back trial with an option to walk on a road (which adds about 1.5 miles but not as steep). The trail is steep to very steep all the way up but very much worth the view once you make it to the top. I suggest going on a clear day. The trail is very well maintained.

This trail was not clearly marked so we walked around the parking lot a little to find where it started. If you head out of the parking lot, across the main street and head to the east a little (just a few east of the creek/river) you'll see a yellow gate. That's the start of the trail. The first fork, we went left (up the stairs) and made our way up to the bridge. We didn't realize that you essentially do a U turn to the right and up and we walked along the bridges for awhile instead. We saw the trail going up when we were heading back down. Someone had carved some bark out of a tree to try to mark the trail but unless you're looking for it, it's not really noticeable. Beyond that, we didn't go up as it was already late. I will have to try this again another day.
