Incredible hike with amazing views pack spikes if you are going anytime in the winter or early spring

my favorite hike

We didn't actually get to the hike because of the roadway leading up to the trailhead- NFR 9030 is basically one long stretch of snow and potholes. Don't think chains are necessary but AWD or 4WD would certainly help. I'm sure you can still make it all the way up, but it's a very bumpy, uncomfortable, and teetering ride!

Fantastic day to be hiking

Excellent workout hike. Amazing views on top

Got to the hike around noon. It was snowing ever so lightly at the trail head. The trail was covered in snow, but all the previous hikers had pressed it down and the trail was smooth sailing. The majority of the trail was easy going. The last half mile was difficult due to the steeper incline, and it was at this moment i put on my yaktraks, which seemingly doubled my pace. Trekking poles wouldve made things even easier! It took me 3.5 hours to the top. It got pretty cold up there, and the view was not clear. Ill have to come back on a clearer day for the views. It took approx 1.5 hours to get back to the trail head with a mixture of sliding, jogging, and walking. Word of advice, dont run in your yaktraks/etc. i started to develop hotspots on my toes from pressure points.

-bottom layer: thermal bottoms and soft shell pants, and my legs felt perfect. I had koderately insulated hiking shoes, and some medium weight socks, and my feet were perfect too!
-top layer: thermal top, light weight shirt, vest. This was also perfect for the hike! The body heat generated made it so i didnt need to pull the full zip fleece out of my pack that i brought just in case. I also packed a light weight rain jacket which helped at the top, more exposed area of the hike. I wore light weight gloves the whole hike, as well as a head band to keep my ears warm, yet let my head breath.
-suggestions: bring yaktraks/similar. I think you can summit without them but it will take you so much longer fighting for traction. Bring trekking poles if you got em! If not, bring water resistant/proof gloves because you will fall into the snow, and catch yourself with your hands= wet cold hands.
-food: i ate three bars throughout the hike. Was surprised i actually got hungry, seeing as how i had a good sized lunch prior to the hike.

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.

This was a great hike. I really enjoyed the new trail, I would just recommend having microspikes still as we hit snow 2/3 to 3/4 way up.

Fantastic views!! Snow at the top, used micro spikes.

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

We hiked this trail to the Ira Springs Memorial with our lab mix dog. The trail started to get snowy about half way up and then the last 3rd of the trail was completely in snow. We used micro-spikes and were fine although the trail over the rockfields was very narrow in the snow and there were some deep holes where people had stepped of the narrow path. There were also people trying to do it with tennis shoes and they were slipping and sliding dangerously on the trail. I would say carry microspikes in your daypack for this one through the winter. This hike has a nice gain in elevation that gives great views once above the trees. Well Worth it on a clear day.

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.

The hike isn't too bad until the last mile. The last mile killed me, haha. There was a bit of snow at the end and spikes help but you don't NEED them. I would definitely suggest going pretty early though because it gets pretty crowded later in the day.

avoid starting on the lower trailhead. The climb up the ridge to the upper trailhead is very steep and easy to lose the trail, at least at this time of year. Bring snowshoes for the upper forest road and microspikes for the trail. Really nice forest to hike through!

Awesome 360 views from the top! Should have done a couple practice hikes before this one though because boy were we sore the next couple days!

Amazing hike in December hard up hard down, But worth the challenge

Amazing hike took five hours up-and-down to kamikaze snow at the top also snowing just as hard to get down

Drove as far as we could on my truck. Almost got stuck but it was a long hike to the trailhead on the right of the road. You can’t see the trailhead sign from the road but once you walk up the trail a little it will say Mt. Catherine. Trail was hard to follow but made it to the top to a great view. It ended up taking about three hours up to the top. And an hour down.

Be sure to have your spikes on you, but it is such a spectacular view from the top!

Trail is closer to 4 miles and be ready for a steep climb

This hike is so pretty to see the falls with water. Of course spring would be the best time. The trail is clear of snow.

I would say that this hike would have been amazing had there been no snow but since there was snow that was about 2 ft deep in a lot of places, it made it extremely hard to complete. Should have turned back around towards the beginning but boyfriend and I thought it would be fine for us with just simple hiking boots and some layers on. We were wrong.

Started this hike later in the day and encountered rain and even snow at the top. Easy climb up for about half of the way and then it is pretty steep j til the endpoint of the this trail. Attempted to continue on and reach the summit of Bandera Mt but the trail was pretty snow covered and required scrambling to get up, which we did not have proper equipment for (crampons would have been useful here). Overall pretty great hike with beautiful views of the mountain ranges, with the peaks covered in snow.

Just did this one yesterday, 11/24. It was nice that there were not many other people on this trail, maybe passed about 3 or 4. However, it was not marked well at all, I had to keep pulling out my phone to compare it to the map alltrails has posted. Once we got to the waterfall, we couldn't cross over and had to go back the way we started, which was a huge downer. I am sure this would be a nice hike if you could A) cross over the waterball and B) It had better trail markers.
Also worth noting-no snow

Fresh snow for an excellent first snowshoe of the season! Short distance (made longer by having to park 1.5 miles from trailhead) but a healthy angle made for a glute-slayer in snowshoes. The fire road there is riddled with pot holes and snow so my Outback didn’t make it to the trailhead — snow tires or chains recommended. Caught a quick glimpse of a spectacular view and blue skies at the top though!

Love this hike but I came under prepared. Make sure u got good shoes and lots of water. This hike was one of my hardest. It's nice uphill walk. When u get closer to the top it gets rocky. The husky dog and two kids came as well. View was amazing at top.

No snow. Great hike and end view. It’s pretty steep so if you’re unconditioned it might take you a while to get to the scramble.

Tuesday 10-31-2017: My wife and I joined Trail Mix group to hike to Little Saint Helens. The weather was sunny and wind was calm. My wife and I reached both north summit and south summit. We enjoyed warm sunshine and good views.

Hiked on the 10/28.
Amazing hike. Very dry. Wet in some areas.no snow yet. Hardest hike I've done in a while. There's two trails. Hard one is 5 miles long round trip. Easier one is 10 miles long round trip. Very steep.
Drink plenty of water before going. Like drink a lot the day before. I was dehydrated and had leg cramps. Take plenty of energy bars and water. I ran out of water and only ate 6 hours before hike started. Pretty dumb.but pushed myself and made it.
The top is so rewarding. Got there at sunset.amazing view. A must hike.
