More Info

The stunning and remote Chilkoot Trail offers a unique hiking experience in the Coast Mountains. Spanning a total of 53 km, this amazing trail will take you through some of the most breathtaking wilderness areas in Yukon and British Columbia. Additionally, the trail was a key access point during the Klondike rush, which makes it a historically important landmark with many ghost towns and ruins. There are three main geographic zones that it goes through: the coastal rainforest zone, the high alpine zone, and the boreal forest zone. There are 9 designated campgrounds and limited access to the trail, so planning must be done carefully and in advance. Additionally, bears and occasionally avalanches are part of the Chilkoot Trail experience. Therefore, it is always best to go with a certified mountain guide that can point you in the right direction safely, while showing you the top spots along the way!
