Trail Condition Report

Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site of Canada

Updated: September-14-17

Outside of the summer hiking season, there are no American Park Rangers or Canadian Park Wardens doing regular patrols on the trail. Up-to-date information on trail conditions is no longer available. Parties wishing to attempt this trek must contact the U.S. National Park Service in Skagway (907-983-2921) or Parks Canada in Whitehorse (1-800-661-0486) to obtain a permit and more detailed information. Off season/winter hikers need to be self sufficient and accept a high level of responsibility for their own safety.
