Fodor's Expert Review Canyon City Historic Site

Whitehorse Indigenous Sight

This archaeological dig site provides a glimpse into the past of the local First Nations people. Long before Western civilizations developed the Miles Canyon area, the First Nations people used it as a seasonal fish camp. From mid-June to late August, the Yukon Conservation Society sponsors two-hour, kid-friendly natural and historical hikes starting at the Miles Canyon bridge. Hikes provide the opportunity to experience the surrounding countryside with local naturalists and are occasionally led by topic experts like botanists, entomologists, and First Nations historians. A bookstore in the society's downtown office (302 Hawkins St.) specializes in the Yukon's history and wilderness and sells souvenirs, maps, and posters.
