Plan your visit
Start the trek in Dyea, Alaska and hike 53 km (33 mi) north to Bennett, British Columbia along the historic trail. A quota of 50 hikers a day are granted exclusive entrance to Canada over the Chilkoot Pass. Permits are required and reservations are recommended. Or take the train into Bennett from Skagway, Alaska or Carcross, Yukon. Camping is allowed in designated campgrounds by permit.
Despite the fact that cannabis (marijuana) is legal and regulated in Canada, it remains illegal to take cannabis across Canada's national borders, whether you are entering or leaving Canada. For more information, consult cannabis (marijuana) legalization.
Possession or use of marijuana inside a U.S. National Park Service unit (for example parks, preserves and monuments) is prohibited. While the State of Alaska provides for regulated possession and use of marijuana, it remains an illegal drug under federal law, which will be enforced within Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park.
