Mule ride intoGrand Canyon---Flagstaff

May 31, 2016 9:10am CST
for those of you who do not hike how about a ride? A mule ride down into the Grand Canyon and spend the night and then ride out the next day. This is truly an old west experience. You go down the Bright Angel Trail to the Phantom Ranch and that is where you spend the night. The Phantom Ranch is a resort so you have some comfort. They also have a couple of other mule rides that are just daily rides. I would think the ride down could be kind of intense since these are just trails and not roads. I have never done this but heard a lot about it..

That and heard mules can be cranky. Sounds like fun though.

@hostessman I am not sure either, but do know Donkeys love me, so maybe mules would too. I have been told mules do not get along with city folk much. lol

I would do this! Stay the night and come back up the next morning.

I've seen this mule ride down the Grand Canyon on tv & in movies and it always looked like an adventure of a lifetime. However, not an adventure I'm looking for as I'd probably be scared silly going down those trails

I went to Grand Canyon back in January 2005 during the winter. So it was too cold to do mule rides or helicopter rides to go down to the canyon. Maybe if I go back someday I would...
