Updated 2-18-2015
Great hike and is snowfree. You hike up the old Mt Teneriffe that has been converted to a trail and do a short traverse to the Mt. Si trail. Then you go down the Mt. Si. trail. Thanks to Alan Bauer for photos.

Hiking up old logging road that has been converted to trail

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 school bus turnaround on your left (this is about 3 miles from North Bend Way). Hike up the logging road. If you have one car park one at school bus turnaround then at the end of the hike you will have a one mile road walk.
Trail stats:  Hike up old logging road about 4.7 miles  and on left you will find an unmarked old road on your left. This is the traverse section  and you will find this section at GPS waypoint of N 47.30.425 W 121.43.657 and  3600'. Continue on this traverse  trail section for .8 miles can you will be right below Haystack on bench to have lunch. Then 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.  Need Discover Pass to park
