Chilkoot Pass Trail is one of the premier hiking trails of North America, if not the world. Its history, first as a trade route of the Tlingit people and later as the passage for prospectors seeking gold is a fascinating story of primitive commerce, perseverance, greed, luck and adventure. The Klondike Gold Rush of 1897 was quickly exploited and short-lived.
