There are two different Grand Canyon mule rides to choose from. The first is a one day trip where you travel down the Bright Angel trail to Plateau Point and back, taking about 7 hours. There is also a 2 day Grand Canyon mule ride to choose from that goes to Phantom Ranch for the night, and then back the next day. Whichever Grand Canyon mule ride you choose you will be guaranteed amazing views. Each passenger had a nice set of Bose headphones to listen to a narration about the Grand Canyon during the air tour. This gives a lot of interesting information about the area. For any mule ride in the Grand Canyon from the south rim, you’ll be descending on the Bright Angel Trail.
