Fodor's Review

The dig provides a glimpse into the past of the local Alaska Natives. Long before Western civilizations developed the Miles Canyon area, the Alaska Natives used it as a seasonal fish camp. The Yukon Conservation Society conducts free historical nature hikes here that provide the opportunity to experience the surrounding countryside with local naturalists. Every Wednesday in summer they offer interactive nature- and conservation-related activities for kids of all ages. Custom tours can also be arranged. A bookstore in the society's office specializes in the Yukon's history and wilderness and sells souvenirs, maps, and posters.
