The Chilkoot Trail Center
Picking Up Your PermitYou must pick up your Chilkoot Trail permit in person at the Trail Center in Skagway, located on Broadway between 5th and 6th Avenues. You must have the physical permit with you when you hike. Learn how to reserve your permit in advance.
Pre-hike OrientationTrail orientations are mandatory and scheduled at 8am, 10:00am, noon, 2pm, and 4pm daily during the permit season. Please allow approximately 30 minutes for an orientation. Everyone hiking must attend, not just the permit holder. Hikers are encouraged to view an optional 13 minute bear safety video that is shown before and after orientations, as well as on demand throughout the day.
