Had great view of the canyon. Stairs led down which some people took. Could see Rapids. Good restroom facilities. River wide with lots of islands in it.

This canyon has amazing views from all sides. There are lots of hiking trails along the river that vary in length, so make sure you have your bear bells and spray if you are hiking the area.

This is a wonderful area that explores the very beginning of Whitehorse and tells the story of the Gold Rush. We went on two hikes here and both were spectacular. The first was over the bridge and right (southbound) a guided trip, about 1.5 hours...More

This area is closed in the winter time. So in the summertime, renting a bicycle is also a great idea! You could then take the trails and check out more of the area.
