Eagle Wind Trail—Rabbit Mountain
With a little luck, you might see a golden eagle soaring above Rabbit Mountain, looking for a tasty lunch. The cliffs of Rabbit Mountain are one of the few places in Boulder County where the magnificent birds still build their nests. The trail climbs through a variety of shrubs, grasses, and patches of ponderosa pine where Native Americans once lived and hunted. Views extend to Longs Peak and Mount Meeker, peaks in Boulder’s Mountain Parks, with a panoramic view of the plains to the north, east, and south. Spring brings colorful wildflowers to this peaceful island in the sky.
