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.

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.

Short hike but a decent amount of elevation gain so be prepared for that. This trail connects to a handful of others so it's a great hike to be comfortable with. I would recommend making the short trek up the hill on the right of the sign post to get a better view.
