This hike goes up Trail Canyon to the Junction, turns left on North Loop Trail, goes up the infamous scree slope with a gain of 800′, follows a ridge, and then goes up a notch with loose rock to reach the summit. Mummy Mountain (aka Mummy’s Belly) is the 2nd highest peak in southern Nevada.

All start on the Waitlist. The reason I became an Organizer is to help people get their cards so priority will only be given to those 52ers who need the card. If you wish to join and become a 52er the day of the hike, please message me several days in advance. If you already have the card, you may be left on the Wait list due to group size limits.
52 Peak Club Information:
If you are a current 52er, the cost of the card is $5. If you want to join the 52 Peak Club, the cost will be $60 to join and $19.97 per month or $5 per card; your choice. Cards will be distributed at the peak. You do NOT have to be a 52er to sign up for this hike but due to group size limits you may be left on the Wait list if you’re not.
Please be respectful of others and be on time or you will be left behind.
You absolutely need to know your pace and ability levels.
Always stay with the group and follow the leader.
Getting everyone through the hike safely is my number one priority.
