4.7/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web
Visit the area around the Yukon River and take in the volcanic rock flows at Miles Canyon. The river cuts through the rock at the canyon, giving the best view of volcanic basalts of the area. The canyon offers many biking and hiking trails, which take you along the river and through some picturesque landscapes. Along the paths you'll find some informative signs explaining the geology and history of the area. Be careful walking along the river at night, as there are no guardrails. A visit to Miles Canyon represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Whitehorse trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • Wonderful small trails and a beautiful bridge, we had a nice time taking pictures with the dog. I suggest 1-2 hours to explore 
  • 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.
