Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park is made of four units, three in Alaska and one in Seattle, Washington. In Alaska most people visit the Skagway Historic District, others hike the Chilkoot Trail in the Dyea-Chilkoot Trail unit, many visitors experience the scenic White Pass unit by train or highway tour.
Start planning your trip with the basics:
Explore different units of the park:
Discover Dyea, Alaska
Where nature meets history. During the gold rush Dyea was a boom town, today it is a lush natural area.
The White Pass Trail
Advertised as an easier, pack animal friendly trail, the White Pass Trail became a trail of disappointment and backache.
Klondike Gold Rush - Seattle Unit
The Seattle unit of Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park tells the story of how hoards of stampeders boosted the city's economy.
