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.
