The hike starts at Trail Canyon trailhead. The trail weaves through aspens and climbs steadily to the intersection of the North Loop trail. (Two miles from the trailhead.) The North Loop trail heads west traveling through an area destroyed by a fire years ago. In 1.25 miles from the intersection of the two trails, the hike leaves the trail and climbs a steep scree slope. Bristlecone pines, the oldest living tree, are abundant at the top of the scree slope. A faint path heads east and climbs to the west side of Mummy Mountain. The path curves north, becomes easy to follow, and leads to a Class 2 chute. The summit lies at the top of the chute.

I loved this trail. Friends and I meant to hike cathedral rock but with it being closed we came here instead. The view at the top is amazing. I didn't find it "hard" but maybe it is labeled that because of the distance. I plan on taking my kids back to hike this trail.

Good trail to take family and friends. You can even ride your bike if you don't want to walk it.

This was very strenuous. Hard for inexperienced hikers but well worth the climb for the view. i would say best times to go are march-june and sept-nov.
