We had muled down to the bottom of the grand canyon and back a few days earlier and thought nothing could compare with that adventure. We went on the half day horse trip which takes the Peek a Boo trail to the bottom of beautiful Bryce. You have to see Bryce to believe the beauty and the formations. You really cannot describe it. What made the day all the more fun was our guide Stetson. He was totally entertaining with stories and even surf riding on his saddle and making the whole trip more than we had ever bargained for. Ask for Stetson, you will not be sorry and take the ride--it is a much better way to see the canyon than hiking it as you are at 10,000 elevation and the hikes are extremely strenuous if you are not used to it.

My girlfriend and I booked the 1/2 day Peek-A-Boo Tour. Wow, this is the best way to experience Bryce Canyon, and get down and up the rim.

We were both assigned a horse, although they also have mules, but these are similar size. So no worries. The horses and mules looked good and healthy, and were well taking care of. They got water during the break.

Our guide "Gary" explained a lot about the canyon, and combined with lot's humor, which makes it an even better experience.

They can be found inside the park in the lobby of the Bryce Canyon Lodge. This organisation seem to be less commercially oriented than the other big operator just outside of the park.

We can really recommend this organization to anybody.

My husband and I did the mule trip throught the canyon. The guides were great, the mules cooperative and the scenery unbelievable!! Until you see the sheer beauty and vastness there for yourself, you can't even imagine it!! We took the three hour ride and tho a little saddle sore at the end, was well worth it!!

Our first trip to Bryce Canyon was made memorable by Canyon Trail Rides. Our family of 5 took the 1/2 day adventure trail ride. Hank, our tour guide took extra special care of our 3 children (10 yr, 13 yr and 15 yr old) as we rode to the bottom of the canyon. A very impressive view of Bryce Canyon! Definitely would recommend Canyon Trail Rides.

We had a great time on the ride. We took the half day ride and it was well worth the money. That morning we hiked down into the canyon and had to walk out. A lot of work unless you are really fit. If you are doing a long visit/hike. Take the trail ride. You see so much and have a blast. My horse kept walking to the edge of the cliffs, which scared my SO to death. He never upset me, he was just looking at the scenery too! I got some great photos and will definitely come back if we have the chance.
