North Fork Mule Canyon Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Much like the main fork of Mule Canyon, North Fork blends conifer forest and pinyon-juniper woodland with bold slickrock cliffs providing easy access to a number of fine Anasazi ruins. This fork of the canyon is more confined, and many of its ruins—including dwellings, kivas, and granaries—are better hidden than in the main fork, making their discovery more rewarding.
Walking in North Fork is easy and trouble free. Segments of sandy boot-worn trail guide you upcanyon, and in between you simply follow the wash. From the southwest abutment of the bridge spanning North Fork, a well-worn trail gradually descends northwest to the trailhead register. Although North Fork is more confined than the main fork, the canyon is shallow: It’s only 30 to 40 feet deep for the first 0.5 mile."
