We enjoyed looking at the canyon and hiking. It was not obvious which was the best way to go to hike....left or right once you crossed the bridge. We liked right best. If you are adventurisum you can cross to the small island for a different view. There was also a good lookout point over the canyon once you were... More

A nice hike that kicks off with a cool suspension bridge crossing over the river. We only had an hour or so to kill so we didn't get to hike the entire trail. I would totally recommend taking a hike along side the canyon, even if you only have a few minutes to kill. The color of the water is... More

Very scenic. We did a 30 km paddle from Marsh Lake down the Yukon River to Kusawa Lake. Paddled through the canyon.

This is a great place to visit. It's a beautiful spot in and of itself but more than that it's a great place to walk. There are numerous trails that take you along the banks of the river and lake as well as into the woods around.

At 10 am and 2 pm the Yukon Conservation Society offers guided hikes around Miles Canyon. College students shared the highlights of the Canyon and Whitehorse area, sprinkling their commentary with informative tidbits about wildlife, geology, gold rush history, botany, First Nations culture. The 2 hour, 3-4 km hike is not physically demanding and is not rushed. Wear running shoes... More

Miles Canyon is a great spot to bring a lunch, grab a camera and spend a few hours with the ruggedness of the Yukon within shouting distance of civilization, It might not quite compare to some of the more remote hikes available in the vast wilderness of this territory...but for being just a stone's throw from Whitehorse it's quite perfect....

We drove to Miles Canyon on our own. There are information signs and a pedestrian suspension bridge across the canyon. We also got a few great shots of a bald eagle. The swift current through the narrow canyon that dumps into a whirlpool would certainly have been a tough trial for the Klondike gold rushers without nautical experience. Even with... More
