Additional Details:
The Chilkoot Trail is 33-miles long, through the Coast Mountains that lead from Dyea, Alaska to Bennett, British Columbia, in Canada. It was a major access route from the coast to Yukon goldfields in the late 1890s. It became obsolete in 1899 when a railway was built from Dyea's neighbor port Skagway along the parallel White Pass Trail.
