All Aboard!

The White Pass and Yukon Route R.R., completed in 1900, is one of the worlds last remaining narrow-gauge trains. Offering an unforgettable ride through the coastal mountains and a unique way to view the history of the region, it also provided an easier way to the Klondike and ended the use of the White Pass and Chilkoot trails.

The old two-story water tank building remains, the last such structure on the railroad.

Stunted trees, glacial boulder fields and pothole lakes contrast with lush forests on the coast only a few miles away.

                                 Down below are the still visible remains of the old trails.
