Rabbit Ears

  • Jan 27, 2013 · 7:00 AM

I talked with a fellow hiker about checking out Rabbit Ears this Sunday. He's interested, but could not totally commit. I am going to try going up there whether he's coming or not. Since I myself have not summit the Rabbit Ears yet, this is NOT a group hike. I am posting it to see if any of you guys have been there, done that, or, you are like me, quite adventurous, and trust your capability, are interested in coming along, please text me or call me at[masked], we will set time and meet up spot then.

    It is a strenuous hike, but this is the time to do it. There is probably a bit of snow in Rabbit Ears Canyon. I have been up there three times and have summitted the Rabbit Ears Massif and South Rabbit Ear. It is tougher in the summer heat, and I went once in February and there was no snow anywhere at the start, and I was post holing up to my crotch at the top of the canyon. That is very tough because of the mean green vegetation and sharp and loose rocks that lie below the seemingly soft snow (beside the postholing is slow and requires a lot of energy. From the west, just park your 4x4 at the Top Hut and walk the jeep trail to the old mine north of Top Hut. At the mine follow use trail towards the mouth of Rabbit Ears Canyon. There is a nice camping area near a big juniper tree at the beginning of the canyon. For the most part you can find use trails that come and go, and mainly stay in/near the arroyo. Take the canyon up, trending southeast. Enjoy!

    I wonder if someone knows how physically strenuous this hike is?
