Visitors to downtown Whitehorse can park and ride the beautifully restored 1925 Waterfront Trolley. The trolley departs northbound from Rotary Peace Park, across from the SS Klondike, and southbound from Spook Creek Station, behind Earl’s Restaurant. Passengers are welcome to disembark and re-board along the route at the various stations. This interpretive ride describes the Whitehorse waterfront’s fascinating history including the stories about the White Pass & Yukon Route line and the mighty sternwheelers that plied the Yukon River.

The S.S. Keno was built in 1922 and has a shallow two-foot draft and a narrow beam. These features allowed the ship to navigate through shallow water and sections with ever-changing sandbars and gave it the ability to make turns around tight, narrow curves. The stern-mounted paddlewheel permitted the sternwheeler to land anywhere along riverbanks and it assisted in getting off sandbars. The paddle wheel was protected from snags and sweepers by the hull. The S.S. Keno worked mainly on the Stewart River hauling silver-lead concentrate from Mayo to Stewart City. It was also used for the early and late season trips to Dawson City. The S.S. Keno National Historic Site is open from the May long weekend till the September long weekend.
