S.S. Keno National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

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.

Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

Not long after gold was discovered in large quantities in the Klondike, dredges were brought into the Yukon—the first dredge was built in the fall of 1899. One of the two dozen dredges that worked this area, Dredge No. 4 was designed by the Marion Steam Shovel Company. The dredge rests on Claim No. 17 below Discovery on Bonanza Creek, near the spot where it ceased operations in 1960. Dredge No. 4 is the largest wooden hull, bucket-line dredge in North America and is a significant example of corporate
industrial mining in Canada.

Guided tours of Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site are provided by
licensed private operators. You can also learn about the dredge using the site guide, the Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the three Geocaches in the Klondike Goldfields. For more information, call 867-993-7200, www.parkscanada.gc.ca/klondike. Bonjour!

Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

The legendary 53-km/33-mile Chilkoot Trail protects the historic gateway to the Yukon once trod by Tlingit First Nation traders and Klondike Goldrush stampeders. The Chilkoot Trail is a component of the Klondike Gold Rush International Historical Park.

The Chilkoot Trail starts at tidewater in Dyea, Alaska, and ends on the shores of Bennett Lake, the Southern Lakes headwaters of the mighty Yukon River. Amidst this rugged northern wilderness an overlay of artifacts and heritage landscape features tell of the story of the Klondike Goldrush.
Hiking permits are required and reservations are recommended. You don’t have to hike the entire trail to relive the experience: you can take the White Pass & Yukon Route train from Skagway, Alaska, or Carcross, Yukon, to the Bennett townsite trailhead for a daytrip or camp overnight. See if you can find the Geocache at Lindeman. Bonjour! For more information, call 867-667-3910 / 1-800-661-0486, www.parkscanada.gc.ca/chilkoot.

Discovery Claim National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

Discovery Claim National Historic Site is where gold was discovered in 1896, triggering the Klondike Goldrush. It is a legally defined mining claim measuring 500 by 2000 feet located on Bonanza Creek, a tributary of the Klondike River near Dawson City, Yukon. The site is in a deep valley which has been mined heavily since the discovery, first by hand then with mechanized equipment.

The discovery story’s details vary, but it is generally held that Keish / Skookum Jim Mason, of the Tagish First Nation, discovered the gold. Soon after the discovery, every creek and hillside in the Klondike was being worked.

Explore the 1.5-km/1-mile interpretive trail with the site guide, the
Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the
Geocache. Bonjour! For more information, call 867-993-7200,
