This is my favorite go to hiking location. The first time I saw Miles canyon was on a boat over 20 years ago. The colour of the water blew my mind. I now live here and am fortunate enough to come here often. Miles and Miles of trails. Do be bear aware.

I have been there many times. Easy drive from Whitehorse. Lots of parking. Usually not many people there. I love to hike along some of the trails in the area. Love watching the water flow down the canyon. Really nice spot!

One of my favorite places to go hike or ski around. The descent down onto the platform of the canyon edge and crossing the suspension bridge is always exciting and it never gets old or boring. There is some beautiful scenery all along the rivers edge to Canyon City, or you can go off the beaten path and explore, explore,... More

Miles Canyon parking is a very short distance south of downtown Whitehorse but feels very removed and wild. The Yukon River flows through a gorge at this point and there are a number of trails that follow the river and run through the surrounding woods. The scenery is spectacular and is easily reached using the suspension bridge near the parking.... More

Glad that we walked the trail to Miles Canyon. The hike is an easy and flat 5km, and you will be rewarded with some of the most beautiful views. We were there on 17th Sept, and the foliage was at peak, simply beautiful.

This is a nice little area just minutes away from town. The water is a deep blue color surrounded by steep canyon walls. There are trails everywhere and a bridge connecting one side to the other.
