Rabbit Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"This fantastic hike offers expansive views of the northern foothills, east to the plains, and west to the Indians Peaks, Rocky Mountain National Park, and the Continental Divide. This hike takes you through stands of ponderosas and open meadows filled with cacti, yuccas, and wildflowers. Wildlife is abundant and can be seen year-round.
From the parking area reach the kiosk, grab a brochure, and take the Eagle Wind Trail east. The trail cuts across a hill on two switchbacks, travels through a recent burn area, and climbs to a junction with the Little Thompson Overlook Trail at the 0.5-mile mark. Go right at the trail junction across the service road and head south. There are great views of the Flatirons to the south and Mount Meeker (13,911 feet) and Longs Peak (14,255 feet) to the west. At around the 0.9-mile mark you reach a bench on the left side of the trail, facing west. This is a good spot to take a break and enjoy expansive views to the west and the Continental Divide."
