Description

The Rabbit Ears, although not a mountain in the classical sense gives a climber a good alpine rock experience. Two volcanic plugs push out of the earth and look like rabbit ears when viewed from certain directions. Several climbs per year occur to the summit, but the lower apron has many rock climbs. Routes range from 5.4 to 5.11. Small area to camp, 4-5 cars. Easy 5 minute approach to first ear. Rock is Andesite.

Getting There

Follow I-5 to Roseburg. Head east on highway 138 to Diamond Lake and Crater Lake. Just past Diamond Lake take exit to highway 230. The turnoff to the Rabbit Ears is just North of the junction of highway 230 and highway 62. Turn on FS 6510 off highway 230. At 1.7 miles take right at junction onto FS 6520. At 2.2 miles take left onto FS 6515. Follow FS 6515 to mile 8.0. You will see the Rabbit Ears from the road.

If coming from the Rogue Valley or points south you would want to take highway 62 towards Crater Lake and then turn on to 230 and then follow the FS road directions listed.

If coming from the east side of the Cascades you would want to take 138 west from 97 and then get on 230 just before Diamond Lake and follow directions from there.
