Grand Canyon Stock Trips

Equine trips are allowed in Grand Canyon National Park, and it is not necessary to take a guided tour if you have your own stock.  Permits are required for over night trips, and can be obtained from the Grand Canyon backcountry office.  Typically mules are used on Grand Canyon Trails because they are better suited for this terrain.  Horses usually have problems on the steep trails.  Keep in mind permits are limited so you'll have to plan your trip in advance.
