Miles Canyon is a must-visit for those in Whitehorse. This is one of the most narrow points of the Yukon River, and the constriction causes the rapid flow of water in this area. There are a few view points to see Miles Canyon. The first...More

I visited this spot in April and the beauty was striking...it must be even more so in summer. You need to be able to hike a bit, through gorgeous wooded trails, to reach the bridge for best viewing, but not too far. A great way...More

Beautiful spot for a quick walk or a longer hike. Bring a picnic lunch if you have the time. There is a suspension bridge to take you over to the other side and head down to the right hand side for some beautiful photo opportunities....More

Makes a great outing on a nice day. In the summer walk the many historic trails in and around the canyon. If it is winter you can ski them. Makes for a great short hike or all day adventure.

I think best bet would be a taxi. Not so sure if there is public transit out that far.
Would we be able to drive into Miles Canyon area with a 40ft motor home? Not a lot of clearance on this RV/bus.

Yes, you can. There are tour busses that go down all the time, and I personally drove a 112 passenger bus down when I worked for summer camps. The trick is to not park in the lower parking lot that gets really tight with... More
