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.

A great stop for an adventure. I prefer the upper hike to Canyon City. Great history and a scenic hike. The is no restaurants etc at canyon city but makes for a great picnic spot.

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

The Canyon is just off the Alaska Highway. It is a beautiful Canyon with a fast-flowing Yukon Rivér cradled by sharp rocky walls. The water is emerald blue and breathtaking! There are walking paths and a suspended bridge that add to the experience.

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.

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
