The view is amazing. I got a clear view of pretty much everything including Rainier. I went up using kamikaze and man it was tough. I’d say this was more challenging than I expected. I’m not very in shape and it was tough. I was solo hiking and didn’t run into anyone after I passed the falls until I got back down to the parking lot. I saw some elk does, and what looked like fresh bear scat up towards the top once I’d started down on Teneriffe trail. Didn’t see any predators otherwise but I still was talking out loud to myself and making lots of noise when I started on my way down. Lots of bugs, lots of rocks. My phone clocked this as 13 miles round trip.
