All reviews suspension bridge hiking trails great hike trail system beautiful scenery both sides close to town wild flowers gold rush beautiful site short hike natural beauty lovely walk lots of history nice spot visiting whitehorse alaska highway
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
We were on our way back from Carcross and decided to stop in and see what was there - oh my what a stunning view.
We just walked around a bit because we were late for another engagement but I would certainly recommend to anyone...More
Just outside Whitehorse, Miles Canyon is a must-visit when you're here! Walk the suspension bridge and take the 1,5 mile trail along the river. you can choose between the lower and higher trail, the lower is more difficult and close to the river, the upper...More

Yes I agree, there are no buses that go there. If you cannot rent a vehicle then a cab would be the only alternative. It is a breath taking view of the Yukon River with a suspension bridge below that if you can drive there you will be able to walk across the bridge and rock it if you like swaying! At night during the season when the Aurora borealis is visible, it is a great place away from city lights!
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?

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 ??
