Beautiful spot for a quick walk or a longer hike. Bring a picnic lunch if you have the time. There is a suspension bridge to take you over to the other side and head down to the right hand side for some beautiful photo opportunities. If you have young children, be prepared to hold their hands or carry them. Steep... More

This place makes for a nice picnic and small hike type of day.. there are lots of trails well marked with trail maps so you can't get lost. With the water rushing through the Canyon it makes for a nice place to have a picnic. The suspension bridge is mostly wooden and metal wires and swings nicely. Some people in... More

Makes a great outing on a nice day. In the summer walk the many historic trails in and around the canyon. If it is winter you can ski them. Makes for a great short hike or all day adventure.

The road is closed to vehicle traffic, however, you can walk down to the overlook and bridge going over the Yukon River. Beautiful historic area, where many lost their lives navigating through the canyon towards Dawson where the gold was waiting for them.

Hidden away just minutes from downtown Whitehorse, Miles Canyon offers spectacular views, walking or biking trails, and a wooden suspension bridge over the canyon and the rushing Yukon River. No paved trails here once you leave the parking lot, just the beauty of nature. I recommend stopping at the lookout, as you drive to the canyon, and then a quick... More

Miles Canyon is a must see for any visitor to Whitehorse. It's less than a 15 minute drive from downtown Whitehorse, and provides spectacular views from the cliffs overlooking the Yukon River. There are good walking trails, some with historic significance, and great backdrops for photos. The suspension bridge over the river provides a nice view of the river and... More

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.
