South Fork Mule Canyon Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Cedar Mesa area, including Mule Canyon, was originally inhabited thousands of years ago. Lucky for us, cultural sites developed by the Anasazi people are found throughout the region, giving you and your four-legged archaeologist a glimpse into an ancient way of life. Mule Canyon is an easy hike with eight ruins to admire. As dogs are not allowed in the ruins, bring binoculars to enjoy the sites. Dogs must be leashed at all times in Mule Canyon. Be sure to pack out or responsibly bury all dog messes. If you decide to camp in Mule Canyon, you need to stop by the Kane Gulch Ranger Station for a permit. Before they issue you a permit, you must watch a ten-minute video while your dog waits eagerly in the car—sufficient reason to do the hike as a day trip rather than overnight."
