Mule Rides at Grand Canyon National Park
For the more adventuresome visitor looking to create the memory of a lifetime, take a mule ride down into the Grand Canyon or perhaps along the rim. We offer two guided rides using a time-honored method of canyon transportation: the sure-footed mule.
Horses may be iconic to the American West, but the equine of choice at Grand Canyon has long been its hybrid relative, the mule. These animals combine the sure-footedness of a burro with the larger size and strength of a horse, and have been carrying canyon visitors since the late 1800’s.
When you need a good cuppa.
En Route to the Grand Canyon from Hotel Elev8 you will find the charming town of Williams, a great national park gateway town with access to the Grand Canyon Railway. Visit Brewed Awakenings, a local coffee shop with lattes, frappes, breakfast burritos, and pastries that are perfect for enjoying on the drive or train ride to the South Rim.
