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.

Everyone overnighting on the Chilkoot Trail, and day users on the Canadian portion of the trail, require permits.
