Fagin's Hike of the Week- Mt Si via new Mt. Teneriffe Trail

Updated 5-18-2018
Great hike and is snowfree. Hike up the the new Mt Teneriffe trail (not going to Teneriffe)  and do a short traverse to the Mt. Si trail. Then go down the Mt. Si. trail. Thanks to Alan Bauer for photos. We did it as a two car shuttle and parked one car at the new Teneriffe lot and the other car at the Mt. Si lot.

Driving directions: From Seattle take I-90 to exit 31 and go north (into town- North Bend). Then at North Bend Way turn right. In less than a mile you'll see the turnoff for Mount Si Road on the left and turn. If you have two cars park one at Mt. Si trail. Then take the other car and drive along Mt. Si road park at the new Teneriffe lot (this is about 3 miles from North Bend Way). .
Trail stats:  Hike up new Teneriffe Trail  about 4.7 miles  and on left you will find an unmarked old road. This is the traverse section, located at GPS waypoint of N 47.30.425 W 121.43.657 and  3600'. Continue on this traverse trail section for .8 miles. Great lunch stop - right below Haystack on bench. The hike down is 4 miles. Total if you have a car shuttle is 9.50 miles (some list a little over 10 miles) and 3500 foot gain. You need a Discover Pass to park. Here is the track.
