Made famous by children’s book author Marguerite Henry, the Grand Canyon mules have been helping visitors see the Canyon for more than a century. Mules were used by the early settlers and pioneers to haul goods and people, and these sure-footed animals still provide one of the most fun ways to experience the Grand Canyon, either from the South Rim or the North Rim.
Families with other children (ages 7 & up) can enjoy meeting and riding the mules on a wide variety of excursions. From an easy one-hour trip along the North Rim, to an overnight trip with a stay at Phantom Ranch, mule rides are a great way to make memories at the Grand Canyon. Many excursion prices include water and a light snack or lunch.
