About Hiking and Mule Rides.
I receive tons and tons of e-mail asking about mule rides to the bottom of the Canyon and
hiking. There are a couple of things I would like you to know.
Mule Rides cannot be reserved through my site and I do not have brochures or information on these
tours. They are offered through the National Park Service concessionaire, and I have been told you need to plan at least two years in advance before reserving these trips, weight
limit is strictly enforced. I don't provide reservations for hotels located INSIDE the Park boundaries.
Hiking requires a backcountry permit and you should contact the Backcountry
Office, 1-928-638-7888. Plan as far in advance as possible, at least a few months. If you would like hiking guides, maps or magazines, you can purchase them from me (and we
always appreciate the sale) online through our secure site at www.canyon-country.com/maps.
If you have additional questions, please feel free to send me e-mail .
