Chilkoot Trail

The Chilkoot Trail is a 33-mile trail through the Coast Mountains leading from Dyea, Alaska in the United States to Lake Bennett, B.C., in Canada. Once a major access route from the coast to the Yukon goldfields in the late 1890s, the trail is now marked and staffed during the summer and a permit is required from June through September. The route is lined with alpine lakes and century-old gold rush artifacts protected by the U.S. National Park Service and Parks Canada, making the trail the largest museum in the world.
