The hike along the water is awesome and the colour of the water is breathtaking and has fairly fast current flowing. Thoroughly enjoyed the hike. Would highly recommend this and make sure you bring the camera!

The colur of the water is so gorgeous, the power of the river, albeit 'tamed', is very moving. An amazing place to walk.

Read the storyboards to find out why it was such an important location during the... More

Our inn owner showed us this place during our transfer to downtown. We did a short walk and took some photos. The view is beautiful: emerald green of Yukon river.

This is a nice hike on the riverside, however we found it like a city walk, cultivated. The scenery was very average, looked the same throughout the hike.

the hiking trails around Miles Canyon are just wonderful. These are also for use in winter for cross country skiing.
