Bunny Flat Trail

Bunny Flat Trail

This trailhead accesses all routes for climbers and hikers on the south and west sides of the mountain. It is also the launching point for snowmobilers heading up into the Old Ski Bowl area. It is ALSO the point for any and all spiritual seekers, motor tourists and any other folks making a quick jaunt or weekend off the I-5 to check out the mountain. This road is plowed to Bunny Flat year round and thus is the standard access point for all winter recreation too. The sky is the limit for activities from here. Day hikes to Horse Camp, Hidden Valley and Lake Helen…climbs up a multitude of world class routes, epic winter powder and amazing spring skiing to your car door, sight seeing, meditating. Treat the area and other types of users with respect. Pick up trash, not just yours.
