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.

This was one of the best hikes I have ever done! We completed it in 2 days however those were long 12 Hour hiking days, it is recommended to do it in 3 days if you have the time.

I did as day hike, well marked trail, moderate difficulty, lots of moose prints but did not see any. Beautiful lake at end of trail to camp or break.

Awesome view for very little hiking time. Trail is well marked but made of rocks, definitely need good footwear.

This route was recommended to me by a few locals in Haines Junction. It was a wonderful hike/scramble. Some of the scree was very steep and difficult, but the views at the top and along the way were worth it. We saw a mama bear and her two cubs along the way, and then another big papa bear walking up the riverbed on our way down.

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.

Check with Tombstone Interpretive center before hiking this trail as this is an important sheep habitat

The first leg of the trail starts in a forest you wouldn't think you were in the Yukon until about 3-4km in then its starts to open up losing all shelter from the trees. From here on out your completly exposed to the elements until you set up your tent. Grizzly lake site is a wonderful site with boards to set up your tent on.

The second leg starts up a trail is called Glissade Pass. The South side is quite steep muddy and grassy. Going down on the North side is all loose rock. Every step you slide down at least another 2-3 feet. After the Glissade Pass its smooth sailing. A few rolling hills but that's pretty much the extend of it
