Do they still offer Grand Canyon mule trips?
Mule trips are offered at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon year-round! They fill up very fast, so we recommend booking up to 15 months in advance if you can. North Rim mule rides are given from May to October and last one hour. Mules are remarkably sure-footed creatures, and you’re sure to have a great time riding on the back of one. They’re sweet, too, and enjoy being pet - so remember to give your mule some scritches for his hard work!
