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.

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

Great trail near from Whitehorse !

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.

A great hike with awesome views. Still lots of snow, and lots of melting at the lower elevations. Saw some wild flowers and an eagle.
