Images of the Chilkoot Trail from a Backcountry Ranger

Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park

Being a backcountry ranger on the Chilkoot Trail has its challenges such as spending the summer hiking 10+ miles a day, living in a remote setting 12 miles off the nearest road, and ensuring the safety of 2000+ recreational hikers! The intimate views the rangers get while working on the trail is one payback for all this hard work! These photos were taken by Backcountry Ranger Katie Unertl during the summer season of 2010.
