Miles Canyon, Whitehorse

4.7
#1 of 10 in Nature in Yukon
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.

  • Another "Must See" place to visit while in Whitehorse. You get to see the Yukon River up close and can see how powerful it is. Nice colour too!  more »
  • Absolutely spectacular views, beautiful hiking trails. Yukon as one wants to see him. Adventure bridge, fun for everyone.

  • Great site south of Whitehorse in history (the gold rush), its location, its fauna, flora, the impetuous waters Emerald color in this canyon objecting to the serenity of the scene (White Horse). Small course pedestrian to soak up the scene. Unique!

  • I am a resident of Whitehorse and I love Miles Canyon. You can walk, cross country ski, mountain bike, etc. there. We used to walk our dogs there. We also did a bridal shoot there. Gorgeous views, great bridge, great trails, lots of fresh air. Be careful not to fall over or let your dogs fall over the edge.
  • One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen in my life! Loved the experience when I visited in August with my family. I would definitely recommend checking out this very scenic spot to anyone.
  • The suspension bridge leads you over to a lovely set of trails but most important was dipping toes in the Yukon. I've been there so many times since I was a kid but it never gets old.
  • ...nice scenery..good well marked trails...great little suspension bridge..public outhouses and parking
  • One of my favourite places to visit close to Whitehorse, and a must-see for any tourist. Stunningly beautiful and historically interesting. Not well marked for a first-time visit: as in, no signage and the road is open in season only. New bridge (as of 2017) to ensure a safe crossing of the river. Lots of trails to explore.
