Only stopped for 1/2 hr, would love to go back and explore more. Lots of trails to walk/hike. Lovely suspension bridge too.

This is a must-see if you're visiting whitehorse. Hike along the canyon and check out the incredible views and rushing river below. Hiking is flat, easy, but high above the river.
