Great views, historic and natural interest

A must visit in Whitehorse. Take the time to walk one of the many trails in that vicinity - it gives you a sense of the wilderness of which you are a part.

you can either gaze across the canyon, cross the suspension bridge, hike through the woods or all of the above. This naturally spectacular section of the Yukon River is just south of Whitehorse and easy to get to for a 20 min visit or a longer hike to Canyon City .

Trip advisor actually shows the wrong location for the trail head, it is south of Whitehorse by about 10 minutes. Not too gruelling but has fantastic views of the Yukon River as it flows thru the canyon. 2-3 hours is plenty of time, take a lunch and water and enjoy.

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
