Keno City is at the end of the Silver Trail, lying off the beaten track and surrounded by mountains.
Hiking trails and mining history
It was once as famous as Dawson City for mining and was the second largest silver producer in North America. Mining still takes place today, and many of the network of hiking trails cross the historic mine sites, there is also a mining museum charting the history of mining in the area.
A drive to the top of Keno Hill to see the famous signpost and views is recommended. This small village exudes history and character as do many of the inhabitants of this fascinating settlement.
