Mule Canyon Professional Review and Guide
"This pleasant, easy day hike follows the course of upper Mule Canyon, one of the most accessible canyons in the Cedar Mesa region. Great bulging cliffs of Cedar Mesa sandstone embrace the canyon, which supports an interesting mixture of pinyon-juniper and montane forest environments.The trail is sandy but well worn and easy to follow, with few obstacles, making it passable even to novice hikers. You will see several well-preserved Anasazi ruins, most of them grain storage structures. The trail leads directly to some ruins—please respect these fragile ancient structures. From the bridge spanning Mule Canyon wash, follow either of two obvious trails that descend abruptly to the floor of the shallow canyon. There the trails join and quickly lead to the trailhead register."
