Saunter along canyon trails atop a sure-footed mule, and experience a part of the Grand Canyon's history. Used for their strength and stability beginning in the 1920s, mules have carried visitors from around the world (including President Theodore Roosevelt) down the precipitous canyon trails. Contemporary mule wranglers guide the one-hour to half-day rides, and share their extensive knowledge of the canyon. Join the Pete and Keela Mangum family and their wranglers on a fun, safe mule ride into the Grand Canyon available from mid-May to mid-October. They have over 20 years of experience guiding riders through the Grand Canyon as well as Zion and Bryce National Parks. Riders of all types and levels are welcome to ride and share in the fun.
Descends 2300 feet into the Canyon to the Supai Tunnel, a natural wonder.
One-hour rides along the rim and 1/2 day rim or inner canyon trips are usually available on a daily basis. Register in the lobby of the Grand Canyon Lodge at the Grand Canyon Trail Rides desk from 7:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m. daily. North Rim mule trips do not go to the Colorado River. The shuttle bus to the trailhead leaves the lodge one half hour before trip departure times.
