To Do Moderate Map

This was a beautiful hike. There is a great variety of things to see. I enjoyed the undulating terrain. We had a group consisting of young & old who found it to be slightly challenging at a few points but was easily overcome with little assistance and rest periods. I like that there are many different modalities that were able to participate as well as the multiple different routes that were available. I found walking sticks useful it help me over the rocks and roots. Highly recommend!

We did this hike on 3/18/18 and loved it! No snow on the ground. Benches conveniently placed for resting. Most people gave up after the Lower Falls so the higher you go, the less people you see.

I took the sawmill trail down, and came back up the road. The tide was out, so the beach was nice. I loved the little tree house, and wetlands. The hike back up was a steeper than I expected. it's to bad they don't have any benches. if you take little ones, watch out for the drop offs.

Such a beautiful hike! My friend and I love it!

Beautiful hike. We can hear the pleasant sound of water falls all along the hike. You’ll see lower falls, middle falls, and upper falls. We went up to middle falls and Valley overlook. There’s also a bike path all the way to upper falls.

Visited last summer and the views were UNREAL. We did the loop in a clockwise direction, heading left at the trailhead; if you hike this way, then all of the elevation gain is done in the first mile or so and there are views the rest of the hike as well as a downward slope the rest of the 6 or so miles. Conversely, if you hike the loop counterclockwise, there will be a lot more uphill hiking as the elevation gain is spread out over the miles.

Well maintained trail that pretty much is up switchbacks to the lake. Starts off up right away and then after the lookout is uphill. Lake is very pretty and a great place for lunch. The backside is beautiful with boulder towering over your head. Lots of people and dogs on a Saturday.

It was an amazing hike with no snow until the DNR portion of the trail past Upper Falls.

Got to the parking lot around 2:00 pm and found a spot right in the main lot. Weather was gorgeous and the hike was amazing. We hiked all the way to the upper falls. No snow anywhere and not a ton of people since we went later in the afternoon. Hiking beside the river part way was refreshing and all views of the falls were breathtaking! Definitely will be going back.

Great work out! I loved the variation in trails. We got a bit lost at first but it was definitely worth it!!

Beautiful hike! We started at 12:30, and had to park a half mile away from the parking lot (that’s what we get for sleeping in). Unusually warm day for March, so there wasn’t any snow to be seen. Pretty packed trail and there were lots of families and dogs. Beautiful forested views, with sounds from the falls as the day’s ambient noise. Worth the view when you get to the upper falls, but the lower falls view was actually our favorite.

This hike is super peaceful and a great little workout. The only thing to note - around 12 pm, the hike gets significantly more crowded with people and (lots of) dogs. We got there around 10 am on a Saturday and it was a wonderful, quiet hike up to the lake.

We did this hike in early February - the falls are amazing! Great viewpoints of the falls and nice walk through the forest

A fairly easy hike with gorgeous views of mountains and lakes. Mid-July, there was still plenty of snow in the upper parts, so hiking poles and good boots come highly recommended. We hiked it in the counter-clockwise direction and we thought the last steep descent was quite hard on the knees but nothing unbearable. If you prefer a less steep descent, go clockwise though.
All in all, a really nice hike with quite a few people on the trail.

good spring or fall hike.

Beautiful hike, and right out back of the house

Beautiful views of the falls and valley! Slowly gains elevation at first and gets pretty steep quickly when you get past middle falls. Some snowy patches at the upper falls viewpoint but no traction needed.

I didn't realize it was uphill all the way. Slow and steady but made it. The lake at the end is so beautiful.

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.

on Wallace Falls Trail

Started with my buddy around 11:30 on President's Day, at which point the lot was about half full. Trail was decently busy to the upper falls, but it wasn't too bad. Halfway to the upper falls it started to get a little snow so we put on some microspikes, which helped a ton.

Once at the upper falls we took the trail to the lake, and although it had a decent amount of snow, there were trails forged by previous hikers that made it a lot easier to traverse. It was a beautiful clear day, and you could see the Olympics perfect from the top of the road. Once at the lake we decided not to hike to the other side (forgoing two extra miles) so we went straight back to the parking lot. Ending up being around 2,500 ft of elevation gain and 10.5 miles, I highly recommend doing the whole loop as you get away from some of the crowds and see some awesome views!

Gorgeous hike! Despite the fog we were still able to view the waterfall and Wallace lake via DNR road. A bit muddy -- don't bring your favorite clothes!

I had the trail to myself on this beautiful brisk morning. Lots of scat on the trail but didn't see any animals around except birds overhead. Stunning area, a few nice waterfalls leading to the lake.

Felt like I was in the movie 'Fern Gully,' totally mystical, lush, and beautiful.

Great day to be out.

Fun trail with amazing views! A few steep spots going up and down that might be a bit difficult, but it’s definitely worth it

it is a great trail very enjoyable suit for everyone.

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
