We love this trail and have hiked it a few times on trips to Whitehorse. From the bridge there are several options with different length and difficulty.

We went there 3 times while we were in the area. You can do different lengths of hikes. Be ambitious or not so ambitious, but don’t miss this place. Water is an incredible colour and it’s really a lovely place to see.

Not sure what as you saw but we took a cruise with Captain Kens Adventures. We were more than happy with the experience. Captain Ken was very informative.

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.
