“An awesome run with views of the Colorado River, the La Sal Mountains, and Mee Canyon.”— Tom Robson
Google Maps will not get you to the start of this Run!
From Grand Junction, head west on I-70 to Rabbit Valley (exit 2). Turn south and cross the overpass and into the Rabbit Valley OHV parking area. Turn left on the gravel road just after the first parking area and drive 4.5 miles to the Rabbit’s Ear Trailhead.
Earn awesome views of the river, the far-off mountains, and some unique canyons.
Take the right fork and work your way along the southern edge of Rabbit’s Ear before ascending to the mesa top. Follow the trail around the mesa with awesome vantage points of the Colorado River, Mee Canyon, and the Black Ridge Canyons Wilderness.
In the summer, keep an eye out for boaters on the Colorado River and camping at the mouth of Mee Canyon. Advance along the mesa top before descending the northeast side of the mesa and reconnecting with the trail heading back to the trailhead.
