It is a pleasant sight to see Phantom Ranch while you're hiking. The opportunity to sit down and have a short break with snacks is nice.
Knowing the mules hike in the supplies, it should be obvious that choices are limited.
M&Ms, granola bars, and lemonade are the main options. Powdered sports-type drink is also available for purchase.
Prices are high but are understandable since the mules must transport everything.
