Mount Teneriffe

Featured photo of Mount Teneriffe

Mount Teneriffe is located at the southern end of the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River, and at the eastern end of the town of North Bend. This forested mountain with a bald summit is situated 2 miles immediately east of more famous Mount Si, but has more solitude than its 600 foot shorter neighbor Si. While modest in height, the low footing of the Snoqualmie River Valley give it significant local relief.

The Mount Teneriffe trail gains about 3900 feet in 7 miles to the top, and is snow free much of the year which makes it a good workout for winter training. The view from trail's end has distant views north to Mount Baker and south to Mount Rainier, and closer views of Garfield, Si, Rattlesnake, and McClellan Butte.

Directions: To get to the trailhead, drive east on I-90 from Seattle to Exit 31, turn left on Bendigo and drive .7 mile to North Bend Way, then turn right. Drive North Bend Way 1.3 mile east to SE Mt Si Road, turn left and after crossing the Snoqualmie River bridge drive approximately 3 miles to a parking area near a school bus turnaround. The trail starts at a gated forest road, and most of the route is old road except the final mile on trail. Trailhead elevation 950 ft, summit of Mount Teneriffe 4788 feet, elevation gain 3900 ft.
