So - the hike to the waterfalls is easy. I think it was an enjoyable hike. But since the falls were dried up and we felt energetic, we decided to continue to the summit. What followed was probably the most grueling mile I have ever hiked. The incline was tremendous and I think it's around 2000 ft up for the past mile!? We met only two people on our way up and the view at the summit was beyond phenomenal. Truly amazing. But it was a legitimate a** kicker!! So be prepared. :)

Love the scrambles and slow incline. Beautiful views! Great hike! Waterfall is dried up right now.

Hiked ~5 miles of the trail on 7/20 in the PM with a few coworkers. I found the hike to be nothing spectacular. The first 2/3 of the trail has a very mild incline (maybe a 2% grade) - keep your eyes out for berries in this section! The final 1/3 of the trail is a very rocky, narrow, path of switchbacks up to the falls. I found the rocks to be somewhat difficult to navigate and a little annoying. There are a few good overlooks, with decent views, as you near the base of the falls. As other hikers have commented below, the falls is nearly dry - but still neat to see (as it appears to be quite a unique waterfall).

The waterfall was nothing but a dribble sadly due to it being July, but the summit was well worth it!
NOTE: if you're coming from the new parking lot, take your first LEFT (right leads to the old parking lot for Mt. Teneriffe) where the trail splits and that will put the Teneriffe Falls Trail on your right-hand side.

Don't just stop at the waterfall, make sure you summit Mount Teneriffe! The views are amazing and definitely worth the extra hike. It's pretty strenuous (steep!) after the waterfall and it's easy to lose the trail so make sure you download a map and wear good shoes and probably trekking poles. My activity tracker tracked 11 miles from the parking lot to the summit. We took the same trail up and down but wish we had done the old logging trail down because we slipped and fell on our butts several times. Happy hiking!

Amazing hike! Peaceful and gorgeous. The switchbacks make the incline easier. The trail is pretty rocky at some points, but besides that it's an easier climb.

The waterfall is a great place to sit down and eat lunch or snack it up. There are parts of the trail that are a bit confusing to follow and have some steep areas where you need to grab on to tree roots to pull yourself up, but other than that it is a nice hike!
