Today, mule rides are a popular way to experience the canyon, offering a unique perspective from atop the trusty animals. Visitors can choose from a variety of rides, ranging from a one-hour jaunt along the South Rim to a two-day trip to the bottom of the canyon.

No matter the length of the ride, all passengers must receive a mandatory safety lecture before the trip. Afterward, they’ll get a chance to meet their sure-footed mule and learn the basics of riding.

So, if you’re looking for a unique adventure that’s perfect for all ages, consider a mule ride in the Grand Canyon. It’s an experience you’ll never forget
