Chilkoot Trail family trip. 33 miles over 5 days, Dyea to Bennett with a train ride back to Skagway. Epic trip with our 10 and 8 year olds.

This hike has not been on my radar so very interesting to find out about it with your great photos (especially the upside down one). What time of the year did you do this?

We did the trip over the 4th of July. Mid-June and July to August are prime time. I can answer any questions you may have. You have to call Parks Canada for permits sometime after the new year. Best to call the first day permits are issued.
