A descent into the Grand Canyon's South Rim by mule offers something more than just another view. Pass through a sequence of vastly different landscapes, each with its own distinct climate, wildlife, and topography. A century-old tradition, mule rides are a good alternative to hiking out of the canyon. South Rim options include day trips to Plateau Point and overnight trips to Phantom Ranch on the river.
