    Route Description for Mummy Pass Trail

    Hike through the subalpine terrain through the Comanche Peak Wilderness to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Walk up the Mummy Pass through the alpine tundra, amongst marmots and moose before summiting one of the most impressive Mummy Range overlooks. Hikers will ascend high altitudes along this trail so ensure to wear layers and consider microspikes to navigate the snowy and icy terrain at the summit. Note that overnight stays in the Rocky Mountain National Park require a permit.

    Begin your excursion up the Mummy Pass Trail from the Tom Bennett Campground. From the campground, take the trail signposted Emmaline Lake. Hike up this path, ignoring intersecting routes near the Colorado State University Mountain Campus. Trek along this route through the forestlands along Fall Creek. At the junction, veer left, and you will be diverted onto the Mummy Pass Trail. Hike this path as it ascends the timberline. Navigate the rocky switchbacks into the Rocky Mountain National Park and alpine terrain. Here, the trail will plateau as you track along the pass.

    You will come to the trail’s end when you intersect with Mummy Pass Creek. Revel in the expansive vistas of the Rocky Mountain National Park and the encompassing snow-capped peaks. When you are ready to return, retrace your steps along the route to the campground and trailhead.
