Mule Canyon Ruin lies along Utah Highway 95 and is easily accessible for all. It is directley adjacent to the Trail of the Ancients National Scenic Byway. The BLM has posted an informative sign board providing information about the pre-historic residents of the area. The parking area is large enough to accommodate a coach or large motor homes. The ruin consists of a tower and residence block. A paved walkway accesses the ruin. A pit toilet is available.
A day hike will take you into Mule Canyon itself. The canyon is accessed approximately 19 miles west of its junction with U.S. Highway 191. Because of the orientation of this canyon, there are ponderosa pines among the slickrock walls. Within the first four miles, there are about eight cultural sites. The route begins in the canyon bottom with very little elevational change, making an easy to moderate hike.
