Good trail...challenging incline for 3.0 miles from the trailhead, then pretty much evens out for the 1/2 mile to mummy springs. Coming down isn't comfortable...rocky most of the way and rough on the feet/knees. Or maybe I'm just getting old.

Loved this hike. it's challenging as it goes up hill alot, the trail is easy to follow. Very beautiful views. You pass by the Raintree then head off to the right till you reach the "spring".
I went in the summer so there wasn't much water.

This trail is not good for people who cannot handle elevation incline! It's mostly uphill the whole way with a few switchbacks going about 3.5 miles until you hit the Bristlecone pine tree and the trail to mummy springs itself. It's a little misleading because I did not think we had to hike this far just to get to the mummy springs trail. It was a beautiful day though with overcast clouds and seeing the house he tree was worth it!

Had a fantastic time hiking to see a 3000+ yr old Bristlecone Pine then went on a side trip to see the Mummy Spring. Icicles in mid June.

Great hike for a short distance with lots of elevation gain. Today the spring was frozen making it well worth the hike!

A lot of switchbacks, but definitely an amazing hike as long as you don't miss the springs!
