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.
