The trail was well marked and easy to walk. It’s a pretty steady incline for the first 3/4 or so but want too bad. I’m not sure I would take my 8 y/o’s on it and I did see some younger kids at the bottom half but not many people on the second half. The spring was barely dripping...as expected. Some of the views were good but not great like I would have wanted. Next time I’ll cut off to Fletcher Peak (a little before the right turn at the big rain tree).

If you’re camping at Hilltop, this is great trail that is around the corner from the campsite. I was in the zone and ended up going a little past the Springs because there is no water in June so easy to miss. The switchbacks provide the most difficult incline, and then it levels off with about 3/4 mile left.

Challenging but worth it. For a while I wondered if we would ever get to the top. Lots of pretty yellow leaves on some of the bushes. Easy to follow trail and well maintained. The trees, especially the Rain Tree, are beautiful!

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!

I had a great time at this trail the temperature was 62 at the trail head. But when I arrived to the spring. It was all frozen and it was really cold so just be prepared for it. The fall trees colors made the hike really unique.

Didn't get very far on this trail because of my hike the previous day. My legs were done about two miles in. I climbed to these rocks that you can see to the left of the trail about .5 mile into the hike. Such good views! I'll add a picture from it. It was a little hazy from the LA fire so I'll definitely be going back to check it out.
