Went during Christmas break (before having this app). Very easy trail. Trail is always packed down. Always a lot of visitors year round.

I did this in March after stretch of 5-6 degree days, which had melted most of the snow from the summits. It was quite doable without crampons or snow shoes. We just did this as an out-and-back to the main summit - it was beautiful up along the saddle, but winds were too strong to stay/explore much. Easy to get to and a nice route.

We had a blast! hiked up and snowboarded down! No walk down required!

Easy to follow trail up through the rock glacier to a nice view. Even at the top of the trail you can still hear the highway below though. And a large part of the trail is on uneven rocks—so not for those with weak ankles. That said, the trail is short and sweet and perfect if you want a little hike!

Great 360 views, even from just the first peak where we stopped. But should be noted that you can’t drive to the trailhead in the winter. We hiked along the road for about 2.5km to get to the trail.

Loved this trail! We started in the morning and didn’t see any other people until we were almost back. The climb isn’t too long or tough and the views and remoteness at the top is spectacular. The snow was nicely packed down along the trail making it quite easy with spikes. The top is windy as expected, so bring an extra layer. A great hike to start the day!

Did this trail yesterday and made it to about 300m before the top before the post holing became too tiresome. We had spikes, but needed snowshoes. The first half of the trail is a steady climb along the ATV trail—not much to look at unless you periodically turn around to see the Mountain views through the trees. Once you reach the Caribou information sign, the real trek into the wilderness above the tree line begins. We were able to follow some old ATV tracks most of the way. Snow was tricky at times—again, snowshoes would have been helpful. It took us 4 hours to go out and 2.5 hours to come back—including some brief stops for photos and lunch. The weather was beautiful—sunny skies and mild temps—making the views of the mountains all around us spectacular. The best part about our hike was the fact that we didn’t see another person in any direction as far as the eye could see for 6.5 hrs. If you want to feel alone and small in the vast Yukon, this is the trail for you. Important to note that there were no signs for this trail anywhere so finding the trail head is just a matter of finding the ATV path and heading up, up, up.

Good conditions, the city keeps it cleared off, The “off trail” paths are packed down well and not too icy.
Get off the couch and get out there!

Great hike, but we didn’t complete whole loop due to lack of time and snow conditions. The view was well worth the effort.

Steep at times with loose rocks/dirt. Definitely worth the view, unfortunately we went on a day where the forest fire smoke blew into the valley and washed out our view. Would do it again.

Simply spectacular!!! The last leg, Divide to Talus, was my favorite one... specially when Tombstone Mountain started to peek... Oh, and going over Glissade Pass was the most challenging trek Ive done to date...

Some really great views. About 20 % of this route is either paved trail or road. One section along the western part is a small and uneven trail along a cliff side. Would definitely be dangerous during ice or snow.

There is parking closer to where the path loops that saves you some of the pave walking towards the SS Klondike and shortens probably a km.

A quiet route with variety in hills, flats, forest trails, pavement, and beautiful scenery. Decently marked with trail signs but some trail junctions are not marked.

Weather was perfect for us on Oct.3rd. some parts can be pretty steep and getting down can be pretty slippery. But the view up top is great and there are plenty of Juniper, Cranberry and rosehips to grab. Also we saw a porcupine on top of a tree at the top of the mountain which was weird.

I hiked through Carcross Desert to the viewpoint in early August on a very windy day. The effort-to-view ratio for the viewpoint is very high. It's low effort and super amazing views of Bennett Lake. I would recommend stopping there on the way to Carcross!

Fun trail, not too difficult and easy access from Whitehorse.

This is a great trail with fantastic views the entire way - LOS goes for miles in every direction and is especially nice if you've already done a couple hikes on nearby peaks since you can easily see them. Possible to avoid the steepest parts if they're too much for you, but each offers great views and so are all worth doing. The road up is bumpy once you get past the Biathlon centre but saves what would otherwise be an uneventful climb - keep driving right up to the radio tower and the trailhead sign.

Fish Lake Loop is fantastic up to the summit, with a nice view of the surrounding valleys, peaks, and lakes. The hike starts a bit steep but has several forgiving flat stretches and there's a nice breeze up on the ridge.

Everything behind the final ridge is worth skipping - the descent is a bit too steep and overgrown, and the view in the far valley isn't worth the extra time it takes to get there. This also had the most bugs of any trail we’ve done up here, and had quite a few swarms follow us.

4 stars if you only go to the summit and loop back from there - that part is definitely worth it.

The glacier/ice bridge/cave is super neat and one of a kind, you can literally see it dissinegrating and melting in front of your eyes, so it feels absolutely stunning to be in its presence. Near the trailhead there is a sign saying a large chunk fell on April 2nd 2018 and it is dangerous to go inside, when you see huge chunks and rocks falling down in 10 minutes of being there you can see this is true, my fiance still went inside just for a minute. Be aware that (coming from an experienced hiker) this is a treacherous trail if you dont want to get wet, there are MANY cold river crossings if not frozen over, or dense bushwacking. No snow on the trail in July, but lots of bear poop, though we saw no wildlife.

Good paved trail. Perfect for an easy 5k without real elevation. Large enough not to have to mind the bikes too much.

It’s amazing!

Great views of Whitehorse, Marsh Lake and Lake Laberge as well as south view towards Carcross. Definitely a worthwhile hike!

Nice, easily accessible trail with varied scenery and good chances to encounter wildlife (foxes, bald eagles, black bears). It's popular with trail runners but not crowded apart from the area around the suspension bridge.

Very easy trail close to the city. Has some nice stretches but I didn’t like the fact that you’ll walk on pavement most of the time. Decent chance to see wildlife, especially foxes and bald eagles.
