Not at all difficult, you can stay on flat terrain or take a more adverterous route. Beautiful scenery. Worth the stop.

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

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
