Skagway is a good starting point for several interesting day hikes. Stop by the visitor center to pick up maps and further information. The only National Park Service hiking trail in Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park is the Chilkoot Trail. Our listed hikes below are on Forest Service or other public lands, but are neither maintained nor patrolled by NPS personnel. Descriptions of trails courtesy of City of Skagway and are duplicated from the Skagway Trail Map. Distance and time are round-trip (return) estimates from the NPS visitor center at 2nd Ave. & Broadway except where indicated.
A downloadable, printable sheet with information on these shorter hikes is available online or at the NPS Visitor Center at 2nd Ave. & Broadway or the City of Skagway Visitor Center.
