Mt. Teneriffe Snowshoe Dayhike

This is an awesome dayhike if you're looking for something long and strenuous. We'll hike the forest road up to the summit, then come down the Kamikaze Trail. Total distance is 9-10 miles, elevation gain is 4000 feet.

The road has lots of snow, and the Kamikaze Trail has lots of ice, so bring both microspikes and snowshoes. Hiking poles are really helpful too. Don't forget food, water, warm clothes, raingear, gaiters, and a headlamp.

Meet at Issaquah Transit Center at 8:30 or the trailhead at 9:10. Parking at the trailhead is limited and requires a Discover Pass. Feel free to arrange carpools from Seattle on the message board below. Don't forget to give you driver $ for gas.

**The hike is VERY DIFFICULT and you should be in excellent shape. You must bring snowshoes or microspikes (preferably both).**

Hike is cancelled if steady rain is predicted.

Directions to Mt. Teneriffe Trailhead:

Go east from Seattle on I-90 and take Exit 31 to North Bend, continuing east on North Bend Way (the main drag through town). In a little less than a mile, turn left on Mount Si Road. Drive approximately 1.2 miles past the Mount Si trailhead to a school bus turnaround. On the left is a gated forest road. Park here, but don't block the gate or the turnaround, as you will more than likely get towed.

    Looks like my ride fell through. I'll be at the Issaquah Transit Center at 8:30. If anyone has room for one more to get to the trailhead from there, that would be great.

    I, too, would love a ride from Seattle if anyone has room. I live on Capitol Hill. Happy to pay for gas.

      Phil, I would very much appreciate any ride :-) since the ferry does not correspond w/ the buses to the P&R... I was planning to take the 7.05 ferry. You? Bringing my micro spikes and snow shoes.

    Also, I don't have have micropoints, but have Yaktraks & crampons. I'm thinking the crampons will be overkill
