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.

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
