“An enjoyable hike to a well-known CO summit.”— Tom Robson
Regardless, this peak is still easily recognizable, and is still a sought after, easy to access summit. Due to its accessibility, Rabbit Ears Peak proves a perfect day trip for hikers of any ability level.
The hike itself starts as a very easy stroll through a beautiful wildflower meadow. The last quarter mile of the hike, however, can prove a difficult challenge to some as it's essentially a rock scramble. Be careful approaching the summit as the rock is quite loose in places.
