Rabbit Lake Trail

The trail drops down through a heavily wooded ridge to a saddle before beginning to climb toward Little Grayback Peak. There are many Brewers spruce along the trail, one of the endemic trees that grow only in this region.  Brewer spruce, also known as the weeping spruce, is easy to identify because of the distinctive galls that grow on the tips of the branches.

Much of the trail follows the top of a rocky ridge and is generally easy to follow but at one point it takes a sharp right turn and cuts across the ridge where it continues through the forest for the final climb to the lake. This crossing is not well marked and there is no distinctive trail that makes it obvious that this is the way you need to go.
