This is another must see for any visitor. Easy to get to from downtown Whitehorse, the deep canyon and fast moving Yukon river is a sight to behold from the walking bridge that crosses the canyon. Bring your camera and explore the cliffs and trails.

Perfect for any history buff and for those who want to experience part of the Gold Rush. It's a bit of a hike so hiking shoes are recommended.

It's a quite long walk from Downtown Whitehorse because of the powdery snow but it was worth it ! the landscape is amazing ! it took us 6 hour to make the full tour but we stopped a lot to take pictures.

We went during the winter so didn't explore a lot. There is a nice bride there and you can sometimes spot kayakers here. Getting under the bridge was a bit of an adventure during the winter. There appeared to be a lookout point higher up but we didn't hike it. There is a large parking lot there.

Highly Recommended for Whitehorse Visitors - But best to read up on the history of Miles Canyon, the Miles Canyon Footbridge, and the Whitehorse Rapids before you come so that you get a fuller appreciation of what you're seeing. For hikers with an interest in history, a visit to nearby Canyon City should be part of the agenda. Also a... More

If you're into gold rush history or a nice light hike then this is a must see. Colours of the water are incredible. The trail systems are endless

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!
