Join the rare breed of adventurer to tread the path of Tlingit First Nations traders and Klondike Gold Rush stampeders on the legendary Chilkoot Trail. Brave wild weather and mountainous terrain on this challenging 53-km hike called the “meanest 33 miles in history.”
Trace a centuries-old corridor that runs from Alaska’s Taiya Inlet to the headwaters of the Yukon River, overlooking spectacular views of a valley scoured clean by glaciers. Scale the Chilkoot Pass in the wake of the nearly 30,000 stampeders who trudged from camp to camp on this epic portage to the Klondike in 1898, weighed down with supplies and get-rich dreams.
Pay homage to the past at a weathered frontier church, once the center of life in a boom town. Artefacts along the trail connect this iconic landscape to the mythic stories of the gold rush.
