The Chilkoot Trail is a 53 kilometre / 33 mile trip through history and one of North America's most fabled treks. The trail crosses the international boundary between the United States and Canada and is co-operatively managed by Parks Canada and the US National Park Service.

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 (907-983-9200) or Parks Canada in Whitehorse (1-800-661-0486) to obtain a permit and more detailed information.

Fall hiking

Fall hikers need to be self sufficient and accept a high level of responsibility for their own safety.

Bear safety

Ensure that you are not presenting bears with opportunities to get a hold of food and garbage.
