Description

The Mummy Pass Trail is accessed by traveling the Emmaline Lake Trail for approximately two miles, skirting the west side of Pingree Park Campus on a road that is bordered on both sides by private land. The Mummy Pass Trail branches left off of the Emmaline Lake Trail and a half mile from this junction the trail enters the Comanche Peak Wilderness. After another three miles through forest, then above timberline, the trail reaches the northern boundary of Rocky Mountain National Park. The trail continues into the park for another 1.7 miles to Mummy Pass.

Flora & Fauna

Subalpine forest and alpine vegetation dominate this trail with marmot and moose frequently moving around the area. On rare occasions, you may see a mountain lion!
