Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park not only preserves history of the gold rush, but also important habitat for animals. The Chilkoot Trail ranges from intertidal zones to alpine and interior boreal forest. This corridor, used by stampeders in their haste to reach gold, has also been used by animals to move from the ocean inland and vice versa.
