The hike along the water is awesome and the colour of the water is breathtaking and has fairly fast current flowing. Thoroughly enjoyed the hike. Would highly recommend this and make sure you bring the camera!

The colur of the water is so gorgeous, the power of the river, albeit 'tamed', is very moving.
An amazing place to walk. I'm not sure how anyone could find it plain and uninspiring,as one reviewer did.....glad I don't live in that world. For anyone who appreciates history, and natural beauty, this is a destination for you.

Miles Canyon is part of the Yukon River, and it is within the city limits of Whitehorse. There is small parking area, and you can walk across the famous suspension bridge. On the the other side there are trails going both directions along the river. This area is rich in history of the 1898-9 Klondike Gold Rush. The gold seekers had to pass through this canyon to carry on toward the gold fields of the Klondike region where Dawson City came into existence. If you can't or don't want to walk, you can view the canyon from a pull-out spot above the river. The water is emerald green, and the whole thing is very spectacular.

Nice spot to visit. The suspension bridge isn't too scary, but I was surprised to see no guard rails along the cliffside walkway. We saw some young kids racing around very close to the edge, a straight 30 foot drop into the fast-flowing Yukon River. Read the storyboards to find out why it was such an important location during the gold rush

Our inn owner showed us this place during our transfer to downtown. We did a short walk and took some photos. The view is beautiful: emerald green of Yukon river.
