Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park is mostly located in the town of Skagway, Alaska. Dial 911 for emergencies in town. Skagway has a medical clinic, but there are no doctors on staff. The nearest hospital is a mediflight to Juneau 90 miles south.
Resources to help plan a safe visit:
Remote areas of the park, like the Chilkoot Trail, have limited cell phone and GPS coverage. Be prepared and travel with appropriate gear. Bring extra layers, rain gear, and a first aid kit even on short hikes.
