Starting in Roxborough Park at the visitor center, we will walk south-east along county road 5 a short ways to hook up with Swallow Tail, where we enjoy some sweeping views of Red Rock formations and the surrounding area.  From Swallow tail we take a short trail up to Rabbit Ear Rock where we can have our snack/lunch.

We will meet at 9AM, in the Safeway parking lot, 8361 North Rampart Range Road, Littleton, Colorado in front of the JP's asian bistro at the far end of the lot.  Taking the South Wadsworth exit off C470, go 4.3 miles to Waterton Rd.  Turn Left on Waterton and go 1.6 miles to Rampart Range Road. Turn right and the destination will be on the right.

 Please bring your ten essentials including appropriate clothing for inclement cold weather.  The mornings can be quite cool so be prepared.  If you have any health issues, please discuss them privately with a leader at the meeting place.  Plan on a full day as we there is an optional stop after the hike at the JP's asian bistro..

Be prepared to wear tracks and carry snowshoes as the terrain varied a lot on the scout.
