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.

This was my first hike EVER and the gal at the visitor center talked me out of an easier, busier trail. I was pleasantly surprised tho! Beautiful views, mostly shaded trail w plenty of places to stop and take a break while ridiculously in shape people run past you

This is a fairly straightforward straight up hike. Two miles up and a nice plateau. Great views from the plateau the backside of Mummy and the Valley below in the distance to the East. I was a little disappointed that the trail is mostly gravel from the lower section and not many large trees for cover. It did become a better trail further up. This is the same trail that connects to Mummy Springs and North Charleston Loop. So because you can turn it into good adventuresome hikes, I like this trail but I'd probably still start on the other side near highway 158, the cut off road.

The view gets progressively better as you go higher and higher. Motivation to keep climbing.

Incline from the start and keeps going higher... you'll definitely get winded if you are not in shape.
