"Boulder County’s Parks and Open Space program has done a tremendous job of preserving area lands from the relentless crush of sprawl that is devouring the Front Range. Nearly 70,000 acres have been set aside to protect critical wildlife habitat, ranches, and agricultural land, and to provide recreation opportunities for area residents and visitors. With the help of an extensive volunteer list, more than 80 miles of trails have been set aside for the enjoyment of multiple user groups. This is a short loop with fine views of Longs Peak to the west, the Indian Peaks and Flatirons to the south, and Loveland and the plains to the east. The multiuse trail (hikers, horses, mountain bikes) follows a ridge through grasslands and pine forests that are important habitat for wildlife like deer, hawks and eagles, and many species of songbirds. Rabbit Mountain, which this hike circumnavigates, is an ideal close-to-town destination and a popular choice for a quick getaway."
