Rabbit Ears Massif

From Baylor Canyon Road, we will take the entrance of the jeep road headed for Topp Hut and park right at the entrance. We will pass the mine site, cross over Northeast to the entrance of the Rabbit Ears Canyon. Take the canyon all the way up to the saddle between South Rabbit Ear and Rabbit Ears Massif. We will summit Rabbit Ears Massif.

Rabbit Ears Canyon is one of the most beautiful canyons in the Organs, straight shot up rock cliffs, jagged and threatening, with variety of rock formations and hues of color resulting from different mineral components. Huge sections of the arroyo bed are simple granite rock, solid and clean, an ideal terrain for canyon lovers.

This particular time, in the Rabbit Ears Canyon, waterfalls are laughing, wildflowers are blooming.

This hike involves plenty of bouldering, small waterfall climbing and bedrock scrambling. It demands agility, full body strength, and mental focus. To some hikers who like canyoneering, this could be a much enjoyable, fun outing, much easier a hike than some other Organ hikes, like the Peak or the Needle. However, to some others who are not comfortable with steep canyon ascending and descending, might find it an unusually difficult adventure. It is for the hiker to find it out.

The climbing from the saddle to the summit is especially steep, but short.

Please bring at least 4 liters of drinking water.

Meet us at 7:30 at Kmart or 8:00am at trail head.

Questions or concerns, please call or text Yubao @[masked]

      I was thinking it have been Davidson Canyon or something closer to Colossal Cave in the Rincons. I should have guessed it was Sabino. lol

      That is where I use to go to "study" with a 6 pack. Didn't have to pay admission in the olden days(Sabino)

    A very enjoyable hike with nice folks. Much more to my liking than the Needle. Mining artifacts were a plus. I was over in Las Cruces that weekend, so thanks Yubao for posting this one to give me a chance to explore more of the beautiful Organ Mountains!

    Yes, this was a very nice hike & the company was great. It was nice meeting you Randy & Mike!. There is one photo in the post I would love to get a copy of as the regular JPEG. It is the #5 in the photo list. Someone caught the moment I was being pinched on the cheek!

      Hello Mark, it's actually number 4. I guess my phone was pretty smart, and it just caught somebody red-handed so there's no denying it later:)

    It was a nice hike. Randy came all the way from Tucson to do this. And he did very well. This is the second hike I did with Randy in the group. Look forward to have many more with him. Mark's a very lucky guy, to bring along such a beautiful guest!

    I'm out. Sorry. Too much to do this weekend and we're out of town next weekend. Thought I could fit it...have fun with the laughing waterfalls. There's still plenty of water in that canyon and a lot less garbage now that I hauled out about 20 plastic bottles recently.

      Excellent, Mark! I do need some challengers going up and down these Organs.
