When I asked our 9 and 12 year old kids what was their favorite part of their trip to Yosemite, they both said the mule ride! It was a great activity for the whole family. We did the 2-hour trip in the afternoon in June....More

We took a pleasant ride through the Wawona-area trail. The guides were very nice but difficult to hear and did not have much meaningful Yosemite trivia to share. Somewhat pricey but a pleasant break from hiking.

Mules just plodded along which is fine for complete beginners, as a more experienced rider the route was only interesting because of the climbing up and down steep gradients. I wouldn't recommend for competent riders because it was just a LONG walk with not really...More
