If you come to visit Whitehorse and dont go here, then you have missed something very AMAZING. Its only 10 minutes from town. I go here multiple times a year just to relax. What a great place for a picnic or for a great hike....More

If you want to go somewhere relaxing and be by yourself- this is the place. This has stunning scenery and to hear and see the Rapids below is breathtaking. A must see.

This place is gorgeous. It's super simple to find, the sights are beautiful, and there's a lot of exploring that can be done around the area! Must-do if in Whitehorse

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
