A beautiful place to spend some time for a winter walk along the Yukon River. We took some great photos of the canyon and crossed the "famous" suspension bridge.

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!

We crossed the suspension bridge and hiked along the river enjoying the water, sun, wildlife and nature. The hiking is suitable for families. Great photo spots along the way.

The miles canyon offers a range of interesting photographic opportunities. You can get images of the canyon walls, the rushing water below or the textured forest. In the summer, I pick mushrooms here too

A trip to Miles Canyon from Whitehorse only takes about 15 minutes. The suspension bridge across the canyon is a must, there are trials along the Yukon River that you can walk along for some incredible views.

Being on this walk is fascinating. Just seeing the type of waters the old paddleboats had to navigate is so cool. The Yukon river is do beautiful and majestic, the hike itself is as interesting with all the different indigenous plant life in one spot....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.
