Partial Government ShutdownKlondike Gold Rush - National Historical Park will be closed to all visitors during the government shutdown
A section of the Dyea Townsite trails has been closed indefinitely. Parts of park trails were destroyed after two flooding events on the Taiya River during August 2018. As the river rose, it undercut the bank on the turn near the north end of the townsite trail system. Within a week an estimated 20ft of bank was lost into the Taiya. Though the river levels have dropped the bank remains undercut. Park visitors are asked to obey the closure for their safety. For more information visitors should contact the park.
