Rabbit Peak from the Salton Sea Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Rabbit Peak (6640+´) is the toughest mountain in Southern California to climb even when ascending by the easiest route. Anchoring the south end of the Santa Rosa Mtn. crest, it requires climbing more than 6000 feet of rugged trailless terrain from any direction. The rewards include fine views of the Salton Sea and Santa Rosa Mountains, close interaction with the full gamut of desert vegetation, and a great physical workout. The three most common routes on the mountain are this one from near the Salton Sea, an ascent of similar difficulty from Clark Dry Lake to the west (see Trip 12.18), and a tremendously long climb up the south ridge over Villager Peak (see Trip 12.17). These routes can be done as two-day backpacking trips, but you must haul all your water so it is questionable whether the difficulty is reduced."
