Description

The area encompassing Elsa and Keno City has a long and storied history of prospecting, mining, and mineral exploration dating back to the first discovery of silver veins in 1906. It is situated in a mountainous region of the Yukon Plateau and the traditional territory of the Na-Cho Nyak Dun (Big River People). Although outcrop is rare, opportunities for climbing do exist on a cliff-forming metamorphic rock known as greenstone. It is characterized by smooth planar faces, jointing, and angular holds.

Getting There

From Whitehorse, take the Klondike Highway to Stewart Crossing then turn right onto the Silver Trail towards Keno City.
