This is a historic trail that starts in Dyea Alaska and ends in bennet Lake BC. It is the trail men and women struggled on to hike over the pass and down the Yukon river to the Klondike goldrush one hundred years ago. The scenery is beautiful. Starts of in the rain forest with gentle grades. Usually day three is when you cross the border between Alaska and Canada over 3700 ft above sea level. From here you decend over snowfields to the inland portion of the trail.

Permits are reguired as only 50 people a day can start the trail. You also must go through and orientation at the rangers office in Skagway Alaska.

Directions:

Half hour drive from Skagway Alaska. Just follow the signs.
