Trail Maintenance at Mount Teneriffe Trail
Saturday, February 24, 2018, 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
An increasingly popular route to Teneriffe (formally known as Kamikaze) Falls, near Mount Si, currently follows a narrow boot path that hugs the creek on its steep upward ascent. In order to avoid further erosion and creek damage, the Department of Natural Resources and the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust have constructed a new trail to Teneriffe Falls that provides sweeping views of the surrounding valley, a challenging climb, frequent views of the creek, and access to the base of the falls. The new trail provides increased access and a more sustainable route for hikers. Volunteers will continue trail construction and maintenance work along Mount Teneriffe trail.
Project Difficulty: Moderate to Strenuous
Age Restriction: Ages 14 and up.
What to Bring:
For safety, volunteers are required to wear:
- Long pants (we’ll be working with tools, so no shorts!)
- Sturdy, close-toed shoes (absolutely no sandals)
In addition, we recommend that participants bring:
- Warm layers, especially during the fall, winter, and spring
- Rain gear
- Big sack lunch
- Water for the day (3 liters minimum)
- Small daypack for lunch, extra layers, etc.
From Seattle, take exit 32 from I-90 E for 436th Ave SE. Turn left on 436th Ave SE and go 0.6 miles, then turn left onto SE North Bend Way. In 0.3 miles, turn right onto Mt. Si Rd. In about 4 miles, the Mount Teneriffe Parking Lot will be on your left. Look for Greenway signs, staff, and vehicles.Google maps: https://goo.gl/maps/ZseADkQQ6s52
