Overview – Mummy Mt Grand Crossing | Foxtail Canyon > Mummy Summit > Deer Creek Road | Spring Mountains, Nevada

Adventure to occur Summer 2022

Mummy Mt Grand Crossing Route Description

This adventure begins at the Foxtail Picnic Area in Lee Canyon. From there ascend through the picnic area, an abandoned Girl Scouts camp and on up to the Lee/Kyle Canyon summit rim. Take a left to connect in about a mile with the main Mummy Mountain summit route, taken by many who start at the Trail Canyon Trailhead in Kyle Canyon. Only, in this case you connect with the summit route near the final summit approach to Mummy Mountain.

After summiting Mummy Mountain, head down the avalanche slope chute on the opposite side of the mountain, the Eastern cliffs area. Navigate over to Mummy Springs and then descend via the Cougar Ridge Trail to Deer Creek Road. Take a mountain bike stashed there earlier down Deer Creek Road to Lee Canyon Road and finally to your starting point at the Foxtail Picnic Area.

Mummy Mt Grand Crossing Preparation

I recommend a base conditioning level of at least 5-miles running 4 times weekly along with one day topping 10-15 miles. Be altitude conditioned at the 11,000ft level, have wilderness navigation experience and ability to navigate very steep, long avalanche slopes.

In addition, have summited the Lee/Kyle Canyon summit rim at least once successfully from the Foxtail Picnic Area and summited Mummy Mountain from that rim. Also, have descended the Eastern slopes of Mummy Mountain previously and navigated through the wilderness to the Mummy Springs area and on down the Cougar Ridge Trail to Deer Creek Road. The links in this paragraph will take you to those adventure description pages, videos and pictures. However, once this adventure is completed you will see all the various parts together in one video on this page.
