Explore a part of the trails, you can reach Chadburn area (lake) and discover some very nice photo opp there. Great for biking around too, on sandy and dirt trails. Part of the old train tracks can still be seen in the woods. Artifacts on the ground. It is a fascinating place.

This is a view that I never tire of visiting. The view point has historical signs which make it come to life. We were privileged to watch a speed boat travel through the canyon and we couldn't help but think of what it would have like to watch a paddle wheeler travel here.

Visiting Miles Canyon and the lookout on the way there is a must do in Whitehorse. Your visit will be enhanced if you first to to the McBride Museum to gain a view of the Canyon prior to the dam being installed as well as a historical perspective on this treacherous waterway during the time of the Klondike Gold Rush....

Just about a half hour drive (if that) from Whitehorse. Breathtaking views and a short and easy walk/hike.

This is a nice place for a walk, not far from downtown Whitehorse. There are some interesting panels explaining the geology and history of the canyon (but I would have liked more as I like those things). The trial is very obvious to find. We liked going to the original townsite as it was a 15-20 min walk each way... More

What a great/safe area to hike in Whitehorse. The trails are well marked, paved, and heavily trafficked. There is a big parking lot. There are some camping lots several feet away from part of the trail if you are into tent camping. Much of the trail is not in the woods so you will be visible for safety reasons. Part... More

Miles Canyon is a peaceful place with majestic view. The huge and powerful river cross the canyons, but you can be in touch with nature and the beautiful blue of waters! You must go!

Ran this as part of the Yukon River Trail Marathon race what a stunning run and place to visit whether you run or walk. Visit the suspension bridge for sure!

I was lucky enough to have a brother and his family living in Whitehorse for a dozen years, and visited the area in all four seasons. The drive to Alaska is amazing, the sledding/quadding is excellent, and you absolutely must plan to do the Chilkoot Trail if you are able - it should be on everyone's bucket list. But a... More
