Beautiful views and great nature walk.

Has a suspension bridge and several trails along the river or through the forest. Trails are marked. Such beautiful scenery.

I think Miles Canyon was my favourite outdoor area when I visited Whitehorse in June 2015. The area is absolutely beautiful and has loads of hiking trails and spectacular lookouts. When I was there, I noticed they had two guided tours per day (one morning and one afternoon), which is awesome. My friend took advantage of this and said she... More

Beautiful spot. The water is amazing! The suspension bridge is fun. Easy walk for most people. However I would be very careful with children. The paths are close to the edge of the cliffs and the water runs very fast in that area of the river. We did take children in a stroller and one walking with a tightly held... More

Miles Canyon is awesome - literally! You stand there and you think: man I am glad I am here! It is a very beautiful spot. Close to Whitehorse but yet not overcrowded. Walk the Swinging Bridge and watch the mighty Yukon River flow beneath your feet. Quite often you can see canoeists paddling down the stream.

We visited here on a guided tour and heard the history from our guide. Went back and hiked various trails along Miles Canyon many times. History is well documented on government signage. You can hike all the way to Whitehorse from here.

A buddy and I hiked around Schwatka Lake up to Miles Canyon, across the Robert Lowe bridge and back around the lake into Whitehorse. The full round trip was about 18 kms but the weather was perfect and bugs were nowhere to be found. The hike is mostly flat with a couple traverses and climbs through loose terrain. Some of... More

My parents live in Whitehorse so when we go visit, we always make a point to drive the short distance from town to Miles Canyon. There's a little carpark just outside the woods you walk through to get to the edge of the banks. I'm fairly certain those banks have eroded quite a bit since we were there the last... More

Absolutely worth a walk and bring your careas. The suspension bridge over the canyon is amazing. The walk is very easy but varied.you must be careful to stay on the trait. There are some dangerous cliffs along the canyon edge.

Beautiful area to go for a nice walk or a long hike. Along the river or in the woods, it's beautiful.

We took this hike as an excursion on Holland America. There were some nice views and the suspended bridge was interesting but the trails were too steep and root and rock covered. Part of the disappointment may have been our guide. I wouldn't take the time to visit here again.
