Details

A springtime hike to the top of Rabbit’s Ear Mesa, where we’ll have spectacular 360° views of the Bookcliffs, Grand Mesa, the La Sals and the canyons of the Colorado River. The trail climbs to the mesa top then flattens out. We’ll stop for lunch among the junipers overlooking the River before completing the loop on the arid north side.
