Miles Canyon is a few miles from town. From the parking lot it is a minute or two walk to overlook the rugged canyon. There is a bridge to the far side, and trails along the cliffside to give perspectives of the most dramatic part of the canyon. Probably more interesting would be to follow the well-marked hiking trails that... More

This is a must-see if you're visiting whitehorse. Hike along the canyon and check out the incredible views and rushing river below. Hiking is flat, easy, but high above the river.

Drove to within a short walk of the canyon. Crossed the bridge and walked along the canyon for quite a distance. Spectacular scenery, difficult to believe that stern wheelers negotiated the river here. a must see attraction.

I followed the trail from Whitehorse to Miles Canyon. Calculate about 4 hours return included. Views are stunning as the trail follows the shore line around Schwatka lake. On the return I followed the road to make a loop back to Whitehorse. Apparently you can follow the old tramway lines but I did not find them. No problem. Be sure... More

I took my rented kayak, and went with a couple of friends who were in a tandem. We put in at the boat launch on the north side of Schwatka Lake then paddled up through the fast water in the canyon to the wider portion of the river. I actually turned around half way through - new tippier kayak and... More

We took the free guided tour that the local conservation authority sponsors twice a day in the summer. The area is stunning, the historical information is very interesting and the walk is a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. The guides knew the material well but did not have much knowledge outside the "script" that they shared. This... More

Miles Canyon was breathtakingly beautiful! Just a few minutes out of town you will find this hidden gem! Take some time and wander the trails that meander along the river. The water colour is stunning, I could not stop taking pictures! We went there twice during our stay as it was a relaxing place to walk and peacefully enjoy the... More
