The scenery is excellent, so make sure you have your camera ready and fully charged. Good for walking and general leisure breaks. picnic tables available. Pets seem to be welcom, as there were a few locals there as well.

We went for a drive and came across Miles Canyon. Very nice walk with lots of scenery. Very pretty area. The fish ladder was not operating but was still very interesting. The information boards on the walk were very informative. Easy walking

Really nice to get out of the RV and go for a walk in such a beautiful spot. Fun for kids and adults...the bridge is a little scary though!!! Apparently lots of history. Be warned to lock your doors though, it seems locals can/will break...More

If you like hikes than this is the place to be. I liked the bridge for photos of the canyon and blue/green water. The hike can take anywhere from 10 min to 4 hours depending on how far you want to go. Good for all...More

We went to Miles Canyon right after a fresh snowfall. The driveway down to the canyon was closed so we parked in the approach and walked the rest of the way down. There were only a few other footsteps in the snow of people who...More

A scenic drive from the dam south to Miles canyon on a sunny autumn day was the perfect finish to our trip. At the head of the dam many float planes were docked on Schwatka Lake. Farther along was a great viewpoint overlooking the canyon...More

Stopped here for a short walk as we entered Whitehorse. The canyon is very pretty and the trails are very well marked.

As part of our Yukon/Alaska Holland America land tour we stopped at Miles Canyon for photo op of the mighty Yukon River on the way out of Whitehorse, Canada to Dawson City, Canada.

Its a very short drive from the Alaska highway to the parking lot near the bridge so it might be possible but I don't know if they keep that road open. Maybe you can walk from the highway instead.

Not sure what as you saw but we took a cruise with Captain Kens Adventures. We were more than happy with the experience. Captain Ken was very informative.

Travelling to Whitehorse September 2017 (12 Replies)
Hi, I am traveling to Whitehorse for business end of September. I will be there for 4 days, but with only half days of free time. So i am looking for best options to fill in the time. Any suggestions is very much appreciated. I will have about 5-6 hours each day off free time. My evenings and nights will be free.. is it possible to see Northern LIghts this time of year? or Miles Canyon? Would i be able to spend a few hours at Miles Canyon. ?

We've been having good aurora in Whitehorse for 5 weeks now, so that's certainly an option. Carcross is good for a half-day, and lots of local stuff, including Miles Canyon, Lake Laberge, and the Wildlife Preserve.

I've read about Miles Canyon and how wonderful it is but that it is a ways from town. Are there buses/public transportation going there or is it close enough to hike to?

It's 6-7km from the nearest bus stop.

We want to do a short hike to see the canyon area. Would an hour or two in this location be enough time? I've heard there is a boat trip up the canyon. Is this a worthwhile adventure?

Response frommombear|
I think you could do the hike in 2 hours.....kind of a neat place, there are a few foundations and relics there of an old townsite.....you cross a foot bridge high over the river canyon and then the trail continues on to the townsite......have not done the boat trip but that would be a totally different experience, through the deep river canyon......maybe you will have time to do both ??
