This was the first hike we did on the first day we arrived in the Yukon! What a great site to see - never seen anything like it before! We were amazed to see that nature as beautiful as this exists in our own country.

Visited this location twice in one day. Early in the afternoon went for a hike across the river from the lookout on the ski trails. A little rocky but the views into the canyon were worth it, wow. Then a little after midnight we went back to the lookout for some time with the aurora borealis, freaking amazing! I took... More

Unfortunately when we were there, the bridge was under construction but the canyon could still be seen. When you read the history of the area and the canyon, it is amazing what the pioneers and gold rushers went through in their quest.

This was a nice little side trip. The trail along the canyon was beautiful. It was sunny when we were there and the sun made for some spectacular photos. They were working on the bridge when we were there so we were unable to walk across it, but we were there in the off season. Still, it is worth the... More

We drove to Miles Canyon but unfortunately were not able to cross the bridge but the view from the vantage point was just as incredible. Beautiful mountain views and the water and just stunning.

Awesome 10k run from the heart of downtown Whitehorse to the canyon. I had to cab it back as it was -3 and wasn't properly dress up for the weather but it was worth it.

Brought back memories from my early teens when we lived in Whitehorse. There's a decent parking lot now, and it's easy to view the canyon from the bridge (you can now cross to the opposite shore and walk along it for some distance, although the old MV Schwatka no longer plies the waterway.

This is a favourite place for our family to walk or to show tourists. If you have little ones, you will need to hold their hands or carry them as you explore. There is a lookout point, which we always go to first. Then we go to the walking path alongside the canyon and go across on a narrow walking... More
