Follow the fabled Chilkoot Trail along the centuries old path first crossed by Chilkoot Tlingit traders and later stormed by the Klondike Gold Rush stampeders. Hike through narrow windswept valleys and scale the precipitous Chilkoot Pass. Visit a Victorian-era church still standing in a vanished boom town. Straddle the historic boundary between British Columbia and Alaska on a route revealing the immense natural wealth of the North.
