This is an LIT Trip for Eric Koop. The trip will start at the Cow Creek Trailhead and move on-trail towards the intersection with the Dark Mountain Trail. At this point the group will proceed off-trail uphill towards Dark Mountain. Note that there is some scrambling required near the summit. Coming down from the summit the group will travel off trail to the Dark Mountain Trail, then back on the Cow Creek Trail .... with views of the Rabbit Ears rock formation
