Where can I go on Mule Trips?

South Rim

  • Abyss Overlook Mule Ride
    Of all Grand Canyon mule trips, this is likely the most popular one, beginning in Grand Canyon Village and taking you all the way to Abyss Overlook. You’ll ride through lovely pine forest settings, enjoy the wildlife, and get water and snacks included.
  • Overnight Rides to Phantom Ranch
    If anyone has overnight Grand Canyon mule rides on their “to-do-this-lifetime” list, an overnight mule ride to Phantom Ranch will be just the ticket. Staying at the rustic Phantom Ranch is an experience in itself, and you’ll ride across the Colorado River and see the colorful cliffs of the Inner Gorge for a priceless adventure at the bottom of Grand Canyon.

North Rim

The North Rim mule rides leave from the North Kaibab Trailhead and are only available from mid-May to mid-October.

  • Mule Ride on the rim of Grand Canyon
    A Grand Canyon mule ride along the North Rim on Uncle Jim Trail provides some wonderful views into the canyon. A one-hour trip may be just the thing for families or if you want to get the feel of a mule ride before embarking on a longer adventure.
  • Mule Ride to Uncle Jim’s Point
    Ride to Uncle Jim’s Point on this half-day mule trip, following the Ken Patrick Trail to Uncle Jim’s Trail. You won’t enter the Grand Canyon but you’ll find the views of Bright Angel Canyon and Roaring Springs Canyon breathtaking.
  • Mule Trip to Supai Tunnel
    Another half-day mule ride, the trip to Supai Tunnel takes you 2,300 feet down the North Kaibab Trail and into Grand Canyon. The mules do all the work, while you enjoy the sights of this marvelous national park.
