    On the Back of a Mule

    A Different Type of Transport

    There are other forms of transport through the canyon besides shuttle bus, train or car. You might want to try a more leisurely form of transportation.

    Some might want to see the Grand Canyon from the back of a mule. There are one to two day trips into the canyon which leave in the morning. If they are completely booked, they'll put your name on a wait list.

    Call the Bright Angel Lodge Transportation Desk (928-638-2631) they'll be able to give you any information you need. By internet: www.xanterra.com.

    If horses are your passion, Apache Stables offers trail or twilight wagon rides as the weather permits. They are located at the north end of Tusayan. Call (928-638-2891) for more information.

    Mule riding at Bright Angel Trail

    by sunnywong Written Nov 11, 2002

    This is a guided mule tour following Bright Angel Trail down to the Colorado River at valley bottom. Much of the trail is along a side canyon so the views are more restricted but the scenery is of course still breathtaking.

    You can take a mule ride to the bottom of the canyon should you be brave enough. They say they haven't lost one mule or passenber yet.
